The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is proud to present the fifth entry in the #myATstory short film series: "Contagious Love."
This film tells the story of Sonu Chawla, who moved from India to the small town of Pearisburg, Virginia to begin a new life. When Appalachian Trail hikers began showing up at her hotel, Sonu soon fell in love with this one-of-a-kind community and joined the efforts to preserve the A.T. experience forever.
