Eva Donnelly of Norwich on the Appalachian Trail

It's 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine and traversing the length of the Appalachian Trail is no small feat for even the most experienced of hikers.

And Eva Donnelly of Norwich is not one of those veterans. But the 24-year old decided the trail was a trek she had to make, and she got it done, almost completely on her own.

VPR's Mitch Wertlieb spoke with her from our Norwich studios about the amazing journey, and how long it took to complete.
