Catching Up With A Hiking Master

Blue Ridge Hiking Co. via YouTube

You might enjoy hiking with Jennifer Pharr Davis, but don't plan on keeping up with her. 

She's ambitious on the trail… even holds the record for the fastest traversing of the Appalachian Trail. 

And she named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012. 

And she'll visit the Rogue Valley later this week for a series of library talks. 

We get to meet her first.
