SUE (54) & CHRISTI (22)

SUE: I hiked the John Muir Trail to celebrate being five years past cancer. I went as ultralight as I could manage and included five resupplies, so we were never carrying more than five days of food. My husband, daughters and brother hiked various parts of the trail with me, and friends and family brought in food and shuttled cars and hikers. My dream for the future: To spend more time exploring the Sierras!

My eldest daughter Christi hiked 100 miles of the trail with me. Monika took this picture of us just after we left Vermilion.
