Prepare to be inspired! This week we speak with Thru-Hiker Hawkeye Johnson. Not only has he hiked the Appalachian Trail, but he has also hiked the Pacific Crest Trail AND the Continental Divide Trail...oh, and did we mention he has done all three of those trails TWICE? We caught Hawkeye at home in Telluride, CO while he was taking a break from hiking the Colorado Trail. He has hiked the C.T. before...but this time it is completely different. He will be sharing this adventure with some of his friends from the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program. Get ready to enjoy over 17,000 miles of wisdom, stories, and laughs!
