On the way to Len and the crew's final stop in Colorado, the frontier town of Walsh, the sun is setting behind him with views that are long and wide to the horizon. As he reaches time station 22, Len is thinking about 11 year-old Emily from Georgetown, Kentucky, who writes this message:
"My name is Emily and I'm 11 years old. I was diagnosed with Phyllodes Tumor of the breast (a rare type of breast cancer) on February 28 and had to have a mastectomy on March 27. I received a tablet from Hopecam while I was out of school recovering from my surgery so I could connect with my class."
Walsh is a small town in Baca County, Colorado. The population is about 546 people. It is located on the outskirts of the Comanche National Grassland, which is considered one of the last short-grass prairies in the world today. Because of its rural, geographic location, pronghorn, the western hemisphere's fastest land mammal, are found in great numbers. The town was named after a railroad official, known only to the locals as Mr. Walsh.
