Hand-Held & Hike-Inspired

Inspired by Shelly Hail's thru-hiking odyssey on the Appalachian Trail, this generously sized mug sports a mountain range motif and words that invoke the ups and downs of the journey. Crafted by Hail and fellow potter Chris Hudson, it also features the A.T. symbol on the back, hiking boot tracks inside, and a lug sole-like texture on the bottom for a true trekker's tribute. It makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys campfire coffee or the allure of the trail less traveled. Handmade in La Motte, Vermont.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hiker's Journey Mug:

    I like everything about this mug except it's size. It's really too large for one cup of hot coffee, too bulky for packing on weekend outings, too heavy for 10-year-old grandson to use comfortably. Really more like a soup mug when winter rolls around. But it is as advertized in every other way - attractive, dishwasher friendly, durable.
