    Love the pictures.It has all the emotions of a hiker which non-hikers cannot read.

  4. Beer and pretzels. How much gluten did you eat? (ALL OF IT!) So excited for you guys to have a big family finish!

  5. Have been following you even though we have been away making our own memories. Your pictures are stunning. So glad Dan and Trent will be there. I know this is something Dan really wanted to share with you. The end is in sight. Hang in there, praying for you both.

  6. I’m re-hiking Washington through you, and in much nicer weather! So glad to hear Dan will finish the trail with you!!!!

  7. Love the beer and brat stop! I spent many years in Germany, and the photos make the place look pretty authentic : ) BTW, the pictures from the day’s hike are especially stunning too. So glad to hear that Dan will be finishing the trail with you and your daughter; it will definitely make for an epic completion! Now to just get the knee and foot pain taken care of; I’ll be praying for you.
