Greetings Family, Friends, Trail Angels, and PCT Enthusiasts-
Happy New Year! This post is a bit overdue, so my apologies. At long last I present you with the new and improved Marmot and Roo's 2011 Pacific Crest Trail journal: http://marmotsadventures.wordpress.com/
For those of you who were following us all along the trail, my sincere apologies for the lack of updates once we got to Oregon. We had less access to email and internet. And when we did have internet access or enough time to sit in once place and enter a journal update, those were the times that instead of blogging about the trail we instead lived the trail: Staying up late to watch the stars and talk with long-lost trail friends. An impromptu trip to town for a Moldovan national holiday. Getting to know the trail angels, the people that give so much to hikers.
As you now know, Gabriel and I made it to Canada! It took us 151 days to walk 2,700 miles (including detours and side trails to town). It is a journey we are so grateful to have taken together.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and stories that you find at "Marmots Adventures." And if you want to hear more about our journey or are planning your own PCT adventure and have questions, please follow up with me.
Thank your well wishes, support and magic through-out our wanderings on the Pacific Crest Trail.
Marmot and Roo
