Pacific Crest Trail Map

Day Zero

> Flying west today, I observed vast open spaces of dry, brown earth far below, punctuated in places by the perfect rectangles of farmer's green fields and separated by jagged mountains. Further west, the fields grew smaller and the mountains larger. "Are those my mountains?" I wondered. Arriving in warm, sunny San Diego, several other hikers and I were transported by Scout to his home with Frodo. They are PCT alumni, and open their home to hundreds of PCT hopefuls every year. Kindness abounds in the hiker community. Filled with a mix of exhaustion and anticipation, and overcome with emotion at times, I read encouraging messages from friends and family, mingle with my fellow hikers, and wait. Today is Day Zero. Tomorrow I walk.
