A journey completed!!!!!!

On the morning of August 14th, day 145 of our journey, we made it to the top of Mt Katahdin in Baxter State Park, ME, completing our 2,179 mile walk from Springer Mtn in Georgia. Such an amazing experience. To say we are overwhelmed would be an understatement. The most humbling, yet at the same time the most empowering. The most beautiful, yet at the same time the most painful. Thank you for being a part of it with us.
