I summited at 11:17 AM on 8/9/16, with 4 fabulous, strong, resilient women! I feel amazing!
Owen, Isla, and Finn –
When you read this postcard, know that your mother does this crazy stuff to help you learn to be big and strong!
A beautiful season on the trail ~ so much growth and sunny days.
Just had a heart-filled visit with Aric at Sheep Camp and slept in the new wall tent, surrounded by re-purposed timber. New history there. I am off to Lindeman today and then home.
Thank you Chilkoot Trail for another sweet hike and season!
Thus, my 50th year, this journey is one of my fifty firsts in this year 2016. This is my highlight of my life adventures! Met a man 77 years young this morning traversing the trail. He climbed Mt. Rainer 26 times with 4 winter trips. What an inspiration! This is his second time on Chilkoot. May my life be filled with more rich history like those who have gone before me and always be encouraged to never stop exploring. You are amazing – keep on keeping on!
