HIKING -- Regarding my story today about record-setting hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail, I've received several notes regarding the other hikers on the trail.  For example:

Laura Talaga, and assistant veterinarian from Chewelah, started in at
Campo on April 23rd.  She's doing it for the adventure and the beauty,
not records, though she's also raising money for the Colville Valley
Animal Sanctuary, which she works with.  Her support is resupply boxes
mailed to strategic locations along the trail.  She's north of Bend at
last report on her blog http://www.traildog4cvas.blogspot.com/.

Not all hikers do it for publicity.

Happy Trails.
