The northern terminus of the PCT, Canadian Border

Oh Canada

19 mile day
We had everything thrown at us today. Last night was freezing and wet. Then, on the hike, we got rain, sleet and snow. The snow was actually very beautiful and peaceful. It made me feel pretty good walking through the mountains with the dusting of snow.
Then, it cleared up and me and Liverpool crossed into Canada! I now have a connecting set of footprints from Mexico to Canada. It felt great. And, as expected, brought on the feeling of... What now?
Tomorrow we will walk the nine miles to the lodge, catch the bus to Vancouver from there, and then fly back home to "real life."
I now turn to face the next big journey in my life. It should be a good one.
