You will find the photography to be wonderful….Contains stunning vistas, soothing images, and awe-inspiring and almost surreal vistas…You will hear the honk of a goose, the babble of a stream and the song of a bird. These still images move with these sounds making the piece come alive. …the combination of natural beauty and the haunting sounds of the flute definitely strike a chord.

Each photo is set against a soundtrack of soothing natural sounds and Native American flute composed and perfomed by her husband, and A.T. hiking partner, Randy "Windtalker" Motz.

Escape to the lofty, cloud swept mountains of Georgia, wander amidst the lush green forests of Shenandoah National Park, traverse the rugged and vast mountainscapes above tree line in New Hampshire and joyously summit the towering peak of Mt. Katahdin, as this DVD takes you on an awe-inspiring and tranquil journey through the sights and sounds of the trail and the changing seasons.

For those who have hiked the A.T., this DVD will take you back to those memorable days on the trail. For those who dream of hiking "A footpath for those who seek fellowship with the wilderness", it is a beautiful way to cultivate the inspiration to do so and to experience the ever-changing terrain that makes up this legendary trail.

Turn off the soundtrack and your television becomes a virtual photo gallery. Or you can turn on the sound track to set a soothing visual and auditory mood for your next dinner party or family gathering.

Here is what people are saying about

Appalachian Trail Reflections”

I enjoyed watching “Appalachian Trail Reflections” with my family as I reminisced about my days and nights section-hiking the trail while the others responded to the beautiful images of nature.  We all particularly liked the music and sounds of nature accompanying the pictures.  Some were impressed with the understated presentation of the "diary" which allowed the viewers to respond in the context of their own experiences.”

Karen BrownPotomac Appalachian Trail Club

"Watching “Appalachian Trail Reflections” isn’t as good as hiking the Appalachian Trail yourself, but for those who haven’t and wish they could, and for those who have and want to relive the experience, it’s a wonderful substitute.  Stunning photography by Georgia “Mom” Harris combined with hauntingly fitting music that was both composed and played by Randy “Windtalker” Motz, make watching this DVD a very enjoyable experience. 

You will experience windswept mountaintops, shady valleys, and pleasant meadows as you feel you are walking the trail along with the creators of this video, just as they did from Springer to Katahdin. You will see very little in the photographs that was man made, other than the trail itself and the white blazes on the trees.  Even the famous sign on top of Katahdin is missing from this portrayal of the trail, which concentrates on the beauty and diversity of nature, and not man’s impact on it.  If you don’t finish watching this video with a desire to hike the trail, then you weren’t paying attention.”

"Through a series of stellar still shots, well-complimented with a winsome soundtrack, “Appalachian Trail Reflections” successfully evokes much of the awe, tranquility and bliss that one feels while hiking the Appalachian Trail."

David Miller, author ofAwol on the Appalachian Trail” 

"As thru hikers Windtalker and Mom did a great job capturing the essence and the spirit of the trail. As a 2006 thru hiker I often dream of the adventures and the sights and the sounds of the trail. Short of heading back to Springer and heading north, this is the second best thing to do. Thank you Randy and Georgia. Thanks for the memories! It would make an excellent present for any AT thru hiker, section hiker or hiker wanna be. Get it!"

Henry Nicols (“Catskill Eagle”) - 2006 AT thru-hiker

Outdoors is where I find solace and relaxation. It is my church. It is my tranquilizer against the craziness of life in our society. Sometimes I’m in need of an outdoor fix but I just can’t get away – for a myriad of reasons. That’s when “Appalachian Trail Reflections” comes to the rescue….It’s done extremely well and takes you rapidly to that happy place of outdoors splendor.


"Where do you go either physically or mentally to get away from the normal daily rat race? ….Physically my happy place is next to a river just off a trail in the state of Connecticut. I’ll tell you about another one I found. This one is on a DVD, so whenever I want to go there I can just pop it in the player and watch it.

It is not a thru-hiker story and it is very definitely up to the best standards. This is about 50 minutes of unidentified pictures of the A.T. or places seen from the A.T. accompanied by relaxing music. At first I was unhappy that the pictures were not identified but then as I got into it, I realized that place names would only be distracting. I know that I have been there before and that is good enough.

……impressive technical work…I watched it again last night and was totally mellowed out before it was over."
