This is a ‘shout out’ to some wonderful people I’ve had the great pleasure to hike with during the past few months. We’ve had some extremely cold weather, darkness, longer than expected days, steep trails, rain, and more rain, water crossings, and hot weather etc.; but these folks have made it a real pleasure and have unknowingly motivated me if ever I was feeling tired and down.
