The search for Lillian Alling

2000 km, 3 1/2 days, one mystery solved, one new chapter written.

Did some extensive travelling over the Labour Day weekend through North West British Columbia and a short jaunt through Alaska. Met some wonderful and helpful people in small local museums along the way.

Lillian Alling, what an amazing woman. How did she survive in the bush with just minimal supplies?
I'm very glad I ignored the naysayers who said she couldn't walk over mountains and that it was just too hard. Well, she could do it and she did do it, and I love her all the more for it.
