Six months later, Mary would become the youngest person ever to successfully walk the entire trail.The trio weathered the heat of the Mojave, the jagged peaks of the Sierra, the rain of Oregon, and the final cold stretch through the Northern Cascades.

Since my son started backpacking with his father & I as a toddler so much of this journal resonated with me. This was an extremely well written and enjoyable read. I loved how having Mary (Scrammbler) along at age 10 enhanced the trip for her parents. Seeing nature through the eyes of a child is wonderous, and something to be savored. Loved the authors including her daughters journal entries. This was an informative and highly entertaining read! And this is a terrific family!
