One New Yorker recently became the youngest member of the Catskill 3500 Club. And while that is a notable accomplishment no matter how old you are, it's even more impressive when you become a club member before attending a kindergarten class. Brett Barry has the story of 5-year-old Luna Pelton. 

Editor's note on April 20, 2020: In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and prevent the need for any search and rescue operations, the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation, local officials and many hiking clubs are urging people to recreate outdoors locally while following social distancing guidelines.
