Legendary Hikes with Kathleen

Kathleen and Jacob first met way back in '05 during a summer youth program, both counselors for high school students interested in a future at Michigan Tech. They kept in touch afterwards, hanging out on occassion, and eventually Jacob roped her into an epic weekend hiking adventure. Kathleen survived the experience, but just barely.
