Mount Liberty is dedicated to Sasha

Sarah George is dedicating Mount Liberty to Sasha. Here's what Sarah writes about her friend:

Sasha began her life as an “Army brat” at Fort Knox, KY in 2005, ten days before Christmas. Her daddy was a Jack Russell/Beagle mix and her mama, a Basset Hound from Texas who pushed out twelve babies! Sasha soon grew accustomed to the booming of tank rounds and 50 cal.’s from the nearby training fields that rattled our house often. When my husband completed his military obligation, we settled back in Massachusetts with our favorite new companion. Sasha is a great teacher (and tester!) of patience and reminds us daily to not take life too seriously… for there is always an open field, a wooded trail, a quiet swimming hole, a windy car ride or an old ragged toy just waiting to fill us with giddy contentment. We wish Sasha a long, happy, healthy life with us on this earth and dedicate Liberty to her in hopes of someday hiking it! Thanks Tom and Atticus!
