|We're More Than Halfway to Boise! It's Time to Submit Your Miles
The #hikewithMike STEP Challenge has reached another milestone. Recently, we crossed the halfway point on our journey from Washington D.C. to Boise, Idaho.
Now is a good time to submit your miles to our mile tracker board. Miles submitted by Thursday, January 26th will be tabulated and published online on Friday, January 27th.
By way of landmarks, this week the STEP Challenge is marching through South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. At 242,000 acres, this expansive collection of canyons, gullies, ridges, and mesas is sometimes referred to as a strange and distant planet. The soft sedimentary rocks and grassy plains hold millions of fossils of extinct animals that roamed America more than 40 million years ago.
