Ask for Charles and his friend Sarah if you decide to hike Mt. LeConte. We were a group of 8 women (aged 50+). Charles and Sarah carried our overnight extras and made the experience very enjoyable and much easier. Both are experienced hikers/backpackers and were very kind and helpful to all of us. They quickly became part of our group experience! Can't imagine this trek without them. THANKS!!
What the reviewer failed to mention is that these amazing ladies were hiking up the toughest mountain around to celebrate an 80th birthday! And according to Charles, she could out hike the best hiker on our staff! We were so very proud to be a part of this incredible event and can honestly say that you make the rest of us look forward to our retirement years:) We also want to thank the lodge for making this incredible 80 year old woman a birthday cake! What a very special experience, on behalf of all of us at A Walk in the Woods, thank you so very much for allowing us to share that time with you!
