A teacher from Bellingham helped preserve the PCT and the Federation Forest state park that otherwise would have fallen to the axe. "In 1926 Montgomery had a conversation with a noted climber, Joseph Hazard, and suggested that the West should have a trail like the Appalachian Trail in the East. It could run from Canada to Mexico. ...Catherine Montgomery can be called the Mother of the Pacific Crest Trail" MOSSBACK'S NORTHWEST Season 8 / Episode 6
