Pacific Crest Trail 2015

In 2015 I got the wild hair idea to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail. The Pacific Crest Trail (aka PCT) is a 2660 mile long-distance hiking and equestrian trail that runs from Mexico to Canada. The trail’s southern terminus is on the U.S. border with Mexico, just south of Campo, California and its northern terminus on the Canada–US border on the edge of Manning Park in British Columbia, its corridor runs through the U.S. is in the states of California, Oregon and Washington.  Below is the story of how the journey went for me.

southern terminus………………………….northern terminus- boom!

Tree, tree, tree, bear
Must eat
