Calendar Year Triple Crown Featured in the LA Times


Sammy and Jackson with Bailey at Height of Land in May.
My blog post for this encounter is Triple Crown.   


Sammy and Jackson completed the Calendar Year Triple Crown in late October. They're the youngest to have completed the 3-trail hike of nearly 9000 miles. 

The LA Times featured the guys in a fabulous spread on November 19. Click on the photo below to link to the article. The photos offer a stunning look into the work involved. 

My favorite quotation from the article is from Jackson: "At the end of the day, there was a lot that went into this that had nothing to do with our will and desire for it to happen,” said Parell, 21. “A lot of it had to do with the luck and privilege that we’ve been blessed with.”

Classy, thoughtful words from a young guy who sees life's larger picture. 


This morning my brother Rob sent a photo of the front page of the LA Times. The CYTC boys landed above the fold:
