Hemingway completes his 20-Hikes Club Objective

Congratulations go out to Hemingway Leong-Lettington for completing hist 20 hikes objective.
Though you’ve joined many more than 20 days worth of trips, you finally completed your twentieth trip under your own power. From the 30 kilometres and 1750 metres of elevation gain over three days when we went to Mount Philips, to Westwood Ridges daytrips, you’re an accomplished hiker for someone that isn’t yet six.
Enjoy your next twenty!
