Pre-PlanningWell, the day is getting closer. I am retiring after 40 years of work and will be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. When I graduated college back in 1976, I had the opportunity to join some friends hiking the northern sections of the PCT. I had only planned to stay a few weeks, then return to Wisconsin and start looking for that 'real job'. So off I went, hitchhiking from WI to OR. I met up with the group at the KOA just outside Ashland OR. Little did I know what lay ahead.
Dave's 2017 PCT Hike
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a 2,650-mile national scenic trail that runs from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington. It climbs nearly 60 major mountain passes, descends into 19 major canyons and ambles past more than 1,000 lakes and tarns. The PCT also traverses 3 national monuments, 7 national parks, 24 national forests and 33 federally mandated wildernesses.
