The Pacific Crest Trail was perhaps the greatest adventure of my young life. It’s the one on which I’ve reflected and which I’ve shared more so than any other. It was the final spark that ignited in me an insatiable passion for travel and exploration. My love affair with the 2,650 mile trail from Mexico to Canada began when I was a Trail Crew Leader working on the PCT in northern California. I finally realized my dream in 2014 and am grateful that I experienced its beauty and majesty before it became so well-known and popular. Even today, I’d recommend it to anyone. Its awe-inspiring diversity is such that I’ve never met its match anywhere else in the world.
