PCT Day 43 – A Discouraging Day

Last updated Mar 25, 2020 | Published on Jun 6, 2017

I didn’t have a great day today. Nothing especially bad happened, I just felt tired and my foot hurt more than usual and I was grumpy and felt discouraged.  I’ll elaborate more tomorrow.

Here are some pictures from today.

This bench is cool

This Signpost made out of a shovel is cool

Hi, I'm Unicorn!

I am an avid hiker, traveler, and adventurer who is on the mission to explore hiking trails around the world.  I’m also obsessed with National Parks, long-distance trails and other outdoorsy things.

I hope to share this knowledge with you and inspire you to explore new hiking trails too!
