The e-book info:

Evelyn Walker, 22 and fresh out of college, steps into an adventure of a lifetime when she leaves her hometown of Chattanooga for the first time by herself to live in the exceptionally mountainous land of Aspen, Colorado. A lover of the great outdoors and an aspiring writer, Evelyn spends her year away journeying throughout the Rocky Mountains, whether on foot or on skis; whether alone or with John, the young man she meets and falls in love with while out West. She keeps journals throughout her journey that document the true beauty, freedom, and love she experiences; as well as the true trial and loss she must endure while in the mountains. The dilemma is Evelyn becomes so enamored by the adventure and passion of her new world, and love in John, that she does not realize she is getting stuck in a place where she does not belong, until it is nearly too late. On her voyage, Evelyn climbs to the top of sky scraping peaks, skis the most extreme slopes, traverses the high desert, and loves with all of her heart. On her voyage, she experiences the loss of loved ones, serious injury, deep conviction about her destiny, and the profound transformation that gets her back on the course she was created to take. 51 Weeks: The Unfinished Journey is the completed compilation of the journals Evelyn kept during this voyage, a voyage so extraordinary it must be told.

Don't Clog Up The Last Remaining Semi-Unobstructed Route Into Town From North Of The River - And Response (2)

The proposal to turn Hixson Pike in Riverview into a more pedestrian friendly street is more than absurd.   Let's be honest. This is the last semi-unobstructed route into town from north of the river, due to I-27 construction and the bike lane/parking lot that is North Market Street.  So, now the businesses in Riverview would like parking on this main artery? ...
