Provo Grandmother Passes Milestone: Hiking "Y" for the Thousandth Time


If you think you're in good shape, just wait until you read about this grandmother who just hiked the "Y" for the thousandth time.

It all started out with Sue Trammell wanting to get in shape so she would look better in pictures during an upcoming family trip.

That’s when she first began hiking to Provo’s iconic white Y in earnest, making the 1.1-mile trek up the mountain approximately three times a week.

But it soon became much more than that. Trammell started doing it for her health — both mental and physical.

“It’s a wonderful way to plan and meditate and to pray for all your kids,” she said. “It just became something, it was like therapy.”
