Pacific Crest Trail SOBO 🥾
Day 40, 29 miles
The road to Etna, California. The road that I reach and realize I’ve now walked the entire PCT. the other half came during a section hike in 2013 with WindWalker💨, 313 miles that was the longest hike I’d ever done at that point in my life; and the 1350 mile southbound solo hike I did in 2017 from Chester, California to the Mexican border.
So....what to do now but...keep walking! Why? Because I want to explore, once again, the place where the body, mind and spirit is so exhausted, where personal breakthroughs happen. That special space that’s earned when one moves through nature, connecting, being, feeling and learning from all that surrounds 🙏🏻🙏🏽🙏🏿
Southbound, I go!
