    My sister and I, ages 59 and 62 respectively, completed the NPT on 9/28/21 and have been forever changed by this adventure. The beauty along the trail is overwhelming. Streams, creeks, rivers, ponds, and lakes are abundant. We saw beaver dams and the flooded results. Vlies are a new favorite of ours. Being in wilderness areas that can be accessed by foot only made us feel privileged. We are planning to hike the NPT again!
