Goat Rocks Wilderness

We met the most amazing woman in Goat Rocks on Tuesday. Bronka Sundstrom is 92 and was moving at a brisk pace with her friend. At age 77, Bronka was the oldest woman to summit Mt. Rainier ~~ and she did it in one day.  She is a Holacost survivor, and everything she said and I’ve read about her is so positive. In our five minutes with her, she is the type of person I want to be.

It warms my heart to see my adult children enjoying the outdoors.

Charles LOVED this site because of the “Flinstone” furniture.

Our backpack finished at 22.6 miles and it puts Charles at 170 miles since he’s been home nearly two months.
