Joan Young Day. Today she is going to be the first woman to hike the full length of the North Country Trail here in the US. This is a huge accomplishment for a hiker, especially one who is the very first. Follow the link above to find out more about this great event.
Now, who is Joan Young? Many of you already know the answer to that. She is our friend Sharkbytes. She is maybe the greatest hiker I know. I consider myself a hiker, but I'm just an observer compared to her. My hikes are always short ones that even a beginner can do, but hers cover over half the width of the United States.
Congratulations, Joan. You have inspired me and many other hikers to go farther and farther. Thank you!
Nature Center Magazine - We have a very special Nature Site Of The Week today honoring Sharkbytes and her blog My Quality Day. Go on over to take a look. Then give Sharkbytes a visit to congratulate her for her huge accomplishment.
