Oregon Field Guide did another story. Balls asked his 11 yr old daughter if she wanted to go for a hike. She's the second youngest person to complete the PCT.

That kid has some moxie.  Both her and her dad are lucky that wound didn't turn into sepsis / osteomyelitis.  That would have ruined more than their hike.
