Pacific Crest Trail

The Pacific Crest Trail is a 2650-mile trail that runs along the spine of the Cascade and Sierra mountain ranges from the Mexico to Canada. In 2017, I attempted a thru-hike of the PCT and hiked over 1800 miles in a single summer. It was a life-changing experience and one that I think about often to this day.
