|Start time 6 AM at trailhead!|
I want to talk about the team members. I'll start from oldest to youngest (me, of course, being the oldest of all!!!) These people all mean so much to me.
My sister Sharon is 3 years younger than me. She lives in Iowa so was not able to train on mountains. She would walk gravel roads for many hours. But the most amazing thing is that she had a liver transplant 20 years ago. The fact that 20 years later she was hiking with me for 18 miles is just so amazing.
|Nothing to do with our hike - this is in Alaska. His dad would be so envious and so PROUD|
|Limping to the end!|
Brett, my son-in-law, was our last member to commit. I'm pretty sure he had a great weekend with us! He was an energizer bunny (as always!) and was usually our FAST pace setter. He went in with NO training but did great! He was pretty tired tho, and I think all these young males had a bit of respect for all of us ladies for hiking this last year!!
|SO thankful these two were with me!|
|Dealing with bee stings|
|Aunties and nieces|
|So so fun to meet on the trail!!|
|End of the trail! No injuries!|
|Breakfast in Stehekin|
