Couple Backpacking across America

Clark and Bowerman backpackingWhat an amazing story! Retired couple Karen Clark and Jerry Bowerman like to backpack. So much so that they have decided to backpack across the United States. So far they have trekked nearly 2900 miles, from the Atlantic coast to the the Continental Divide in Colorado. Their transcontinental journey started two years ago in early 2010. Their route is along the American Discovery Trail, a trail created in 2000 and it is being called the first “non-motorized” route across the United States. So far around twenty individuals have made the trek. While Karen and Jerry are determined to finish, they’re taking their time and enjoying the sites and sounds of America.
