In 2011 I thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. The PCT was my first, but hopefully not last, long-distance hike. That journey was the impetus for this blog, and continues to remind me why I love hiking and running through wild places and meeting new characters along the way.

The PCT is one of three major long distance hiking trails in the country. It spans roughly 2650 miles from the California-Mexico border to the Washington-Canada border, traversing many National Parks, Forests, and Wilderness Areas while following the crest of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade ranges. It has been said that fewer people have completed a thru-hike of the trail in one season than have summited Mt. Everest. Neither is a small feat.

At the border, pointed north…
