Happy Hikers


On August 9, Harvey Sutton, 5, became one of the youngest people ever to complete the Appalachian Trail. The trail is the world’s longest hiking-only footpath. One end is at Springer Mountain. That’s in Georgia. The other is atop Mount Katahdin, in Maine.

Harvey traveled more than 2,100 miles with his parents. It took 209 days. Exploring nature kept him entertained. “The rock scrambles were really fun and hard,” Harvey says. “We were not bored.”
