In 2013 my close friends Jordan and Ruth invited me to join them on a journey through the mountains via the Sierra High Route. This began my first long trail.
If you look closely in the photos you will see Henry a stoic 2.5 year old who also did the route with his parents. Let me tell you this was an adventure of a life time and I still think back to it this day.
We traveled until the Rim Fire kicked us off the trial. The smoke was bad and impeded our breathing. Though we could have gone on we didn’t want to deal with a child having breathing difficulties out in the back country.
