Adventure Speaker Series: Mary E Davison "Old Lady on the Trail"

Adventure on National Scenic Trails does not need to end when one is old. Not beginning long-distance hiking until age 60, Mary takes us with her on her trail journeys to experience encounters with the beauty of wilderness from the Eastern ranges of the Appalachian Trail, the challenges of desert, snow, granite and thick forests of the Pacific Crest Trail, and the rugged and the remote grandeur of the Continental Divide Trail. A long section hiker, she persevered over the years in spite of joint replacements and the limitations of age to become the oldest person (as of 2017) to complete long distance hiking's Triple Crown at age 76
