100 My Parents Pam and Ed Giecek
My parents talk about life on the trail over the years. My grandpa, Al Christensen, is mentioned a lot because he was the person who ignited the outdoor passion in our family.
My pop also tells the story of my Uncle, Mark Christensen, on a backpacking trip in the seventies.
We talk about me growing up in Granite Falls and my mom, who worked summers at Camp Silverton up the Mountain Loop Highway in the 60's. She also skied Mount Pilchuck regularly and tells some funny stories.
