I would like to welcome and thank all of you who have taken the time to visit my website. It has come to my attention that an article that I was asked to contribute to earlier this summer has just been published.
While I am very grateful that I was asked to be a part of this article, I wish I had the opportunity to take a look at it before it went out, as I just discovered the author said I was a Triple Crowner, which I am not. I wanted to correct this mistake so that no one would be mislead. (I have contacted him and asked for a correction). The Colorado Trail is a 500 mile long trail extending from outside of Denver to Durango, CO. It is not the Continental Divide Trail, which is the third long trail in the US, extending from the Mexican/US border to the US/Canadian border through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. This trail is FAR more difficult than either the AT or the PCT, and while I have had this trail in my mind since I finished the PCT, I have not yet attempted it due to a multitude of health problems in the past couple of years.
If you would like to read about my journeys on the AT or PCT, you can find the links to these journals in the sidebar.
Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy!
Hey Wendy! It’s Puppy. I was pretty stoked to be right next to you in that article – you’re my start day and Scout and Frodo’s bunk buddy! I did think, “Wait, she never said she was a CDT finisher,” but then again that’s how it should be, as every trail is a separate experience and those nervous hours weren’t time for bragging.
Anyway, I certainly admire you and your great voice in the Clymb piece!
Puppy! It’s so nice to hear from you! I was very happy to see you in the article, as well! You look great in the picture! (The one they printed of me was NOT the one I sent him… Grrr). So many surprises in that article. I was cringing at the way they combined “you”s and “us”s in that sentence by me. They trimmed down and combined my sentences. And the Triple Crown thing was certainly a shock…
I think we last saw each other just after Ziggy and the Bear’s, right? Such a long time ago! Are you on fb?
