Comments: Just here to brag about Margaret summiting Mt. Madison at 3.5 years old. Before our summit push we were taking a break at Madison Hut and were thrilled to see a living White Mountain legend hiker/runner/skier show up with a friend of his who reported they were dong a partial hut traverse. Told him Margaret has watched every single one of his youtube videos at least 20 times and he was gracious enough to let me snap a few photos of the two of them. A real highlight of our 2021 hiking season. Halfway down Valley Way Margaret started jogging which was my signal to make her hike more trails, so we checked out the Scar trail/loop and were rewarded with some awesome views and an abundance of blueberries. Saw about 20 hikers total today, no wind, tank tops and shorts all day. 111 trails completed for Margaret, 497 for her old man)
