  • Judy Young said she realized late in life that her boots were made for more than just walking – they were made for hiking long-distance trails.

    Young, 66, has by her estimation trail-hiked more than 3,000 miles since retiring in 1997 as a teacher from the Shelby County school system. Her foot-trips, some of which she has done by herself, have taken her coast-to-coast in the United States and to several overseas destinations.

    But before she could take her first journey, she had to avoid stumbling over the loving objections of family and friends.
