On June 4 we finally achieved our long-held goal of accepting the Twin Valley Trail Challenge. This event is put on by a group of volunteers and it is truly an amazing venture. We accepted the challenge for all 27.5 miles. There we three water/food stops along the route (one is encountered twice). Two stops were well-stocked with water, Gatorade, chips, granola bars, and apples/bananas. Cold water and naturalists were available at the nature center. Additionally, cases of water were left in the neighborhood for hikers around mile 24.
Honestly, the experience was a blur. It is probably better to tell the story in pictures.
