This has been quite the month- finishing WA section of the PCT, which means over 500 miles I've walked with 40+ lbs on my back. Visiting friends and new places. And loving every minute. I can honestly say that putting your head to the ground and hiking miles and miles a day is not what this journey is about. I could care less about hiking 40 miles a day with my nose in the dirt, and angry. You end up missing the beauty and experience of meeting some amazing people. And witnessing places like this. I'm hiking my own hike even if it takes me to new trails.
