Pacific Crest Trail Map

Some belated thank yous

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is coming up. It's been over a month since Oli and I have been reunited and back at home. Life was rough at first, as you can tell from my last post, but we've slowly (very very slowly) been adjusting back to regular life. Every day that passes brings a renewed sense of appreciation for our time out on the trail this last hiking season. Not a day goes by without a memory of the trail passing through my thoughts. So many memories of so many places and people. With that brings immense gratitude for all that have supported us and made our hikes possible. Words cannot express how moved I am by the community of support we have, so I'll just say Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!!!
