“Hiking the Triple Crown”
In July 2008, hikers Phil Hough and Deb Hunsicker embarked on an epic journey to hike the 3,100 miles length of the Continental Divide Trail. Over the following three summers they completed this rugged route as it traces its course along the spine of the continent. In doing so, they also completed the third and final leg of the coveted “triple crown” of hiking, which also includes the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. Hiking these three trails with an eye to native plants and wild lands, they took over 20,000 photos and slides and compiled countless tales of adventure. Phil and Deb will share their stunning photographs of wild flowers, wild lands and incredible critters.
