Pacific Crest Trail Map


I'm beginning to think of attempting the trail again in 2014. Is thru hiking a form of mental illness? Physical Therapy is helping my foot, but I'm a long way from any hiking.

I met Argentina at Big Bear Lake Hostel. He is a wonderful person that has a painful cronic back condition. He made it 1200 miles last year and is giving it another try this year. Argentina warned me not to burn out after finishing the high Sierra. Why didn't I listen?

I camped with the amazing 3 Cs and his nephew just before reaching Sierra City. He has had treatment for three different cancers over the last few years and keeps returning to the trail. He started at Sierra City and was heading south to finish a missing section. These guys are real men and would never let a foot problem stop them. Will the Wuss return? Go Pacific Crest Trail hikers!
