Boiling Springs, PA 17007
One of the questions people often ask is “Why do you like post offices?”, Or “What is the reason behind taking pictures of post offices?”. The Boiling Springs post office is one example of why the post office is not only special to me, but also why it is special with Appalachian Trail hikers.
As long distance hikers we rely on the post offices along the trail for re-supply. By shipping provisions to ourselves along the way we are able to acquire items that may not be available locally. The Boiling Springs post office is an important part in the success of thru-hikers along the Appalachian Trail.
