Serious Hiking!

Hiking all three major US long distance trails -- Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail is called a Triple Crown.  This young boy, age 7, wants to complete a triple crown by age 13.  Brad met this boy on the PCT.  After a long day of hiking here he is with the energy to build sandcastles.   Barracuda is his trail name.

Hiking one trail in both directions, in one season, is called a yo-yo.
