Letters: A Sierra tale

Re "A High Sierra challenge," Column One, Oct. 26

Diana Marcum's story about Mary Breckenridge's trek across the High Sierra brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. The story of two unique Californians was so well written, so filled with such keen detail, that it left me grateful that I was reading this on printed paper like the old world Mary celebrates in the Sierras. Thank you for featuring such a life-affirming story on the front page, which often must chronicle so much that is askew in this world.
