Women Hikers Walk-Of-Fame
About a year
ago, I got into my head that I wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail. Grandma
Gatewoods Walk was one of the first books I read, and I was so inspired
by her as a woman, by what she had been through, and by her tenacity.
Especially with the harsh supplies/conditions she had to deal with on
the trail at the time (her sneakers! cowboy camping every night! her little
tiny knapsack!). She totally inspired and empowered me to think that I
could do that trail too, and I will.
