|Bataan Memorial Death March, NM (2012)|
Laurel joined our family in October 2010 at 16-months-old. We included Laurel immediately in our outdoor adventures. However, she was too little to join Kellisa on some of our longer and more difficult hikes. We continued to hike in new states and push our limits while Laurel would join us on shorter hikes. Eventually, Laurel became a full member of our goal to visit and hike in all 50 United States. We reset the goal to have both girls visit and hike together in all 50 states.
With few exceptions since 2014, Laurel is with Kellisa on all her hikes.
Below are the picture highlights of Kellisa's last hikes without Laurel.
Wisconsin - Michigan
Texas - New Mexico
