A little girl from upstate New York who loves the great outdoors became the youngest person ever to climb all 46 high peaks in the Adirondack Mountains at just 4 years old.
Maebh Nesbitt, now 5, completed the task just two days before her 5th birthday in late July.
“I had a dream when she was in my tummy that we would hike together then when she was big enough,” her mom, Siobhan Carney-Nesbitt told “Good Morning America”
“Just before she turned four we said, ‘Let’s go hike, you can hike with mommy — she just loved it,'” she said. “It kind of became all of our goal as she continued to hike.”
Carney-Nesbitt said that she and her husband, Lee Nesbitt, are both members of the 46-ers club, and their daughter wanted a sticker from the club for herself.
“I said that she can’t have the sticker for your water bottle until you climb every peak and earn it,” her mom said.
