USA/Canada Border - Monument 78

Day 119 - Canada

It's over! I'm done! I completed the 2654 mile hike from Mexico to Canada at 542 pm PST with my dad at my side! It brings the total to 3 months and 27 days. It's amazing to get to the end. It hasn't sunk in yet I guess. Well we began 20 miles out with an outside shot at making it mostly depending on my dad's feet. He powered through it. We walked through many passes including windy, rock, and castle passes. Then we climbed down the devils backbone and past Hopkins lake. All were with amazing views of the extremely snowy northern cascades. There were a few patches of snow along the way but we successfully navigated them. At one point we were taking our lunch break and all of a sudden I saw a machine gun come around the corner in the hands of a border patrol agent. There were two of them and they turned out to be nice, just a little intimidating with the gun. They were not much older than me but seemed to have some kind of status due to their border patrol hats. They passed and then a while later we met two other agents walking the trail. It was also nice to meet one lady who will finish the trail tomorrow. She has section hiked it over 9 years and doing every section in order. Well with it all over this means my blog will be coming to an end soon. I am thinking I will do 2 more posts and maybe a few pictures. I will post one summary of the trip once I get to a computer to write it, and then finally I will post a link to the video I will make of the pictures and videos I took along this epic journey! Both should be up within the week.
