Pacific Crest Trail Map

Done!

After ~650 miles and 47 days on the trail, I have arrived in Olympia. Chris and I were planning to finish up today (Saturday), but due to an inaccurate guide book and a serious twist of fate, we walked across the Bridge of the Gods and into Washington on Friday. We made it to my parent's house on Friday night and have spent the last 24 hours eating, reading, lounging, and eating some more. It's only been a day and I've already had a burger, a milkshake, a couple beers, sausage, huckleberry pancakes, crab cakes, pork and salmon jerky, cherries, 1.5 steaks, german potato salad which I've been craving for months, and both blackberry and lemon meringue pies. Yeah, it's been a good day.

I'll be typing up and posting my journal entries over the coming days, starting where I left off in mid July. For now, I simply want to thank everyone who helped make this little jaunt possible, particularly Carolyn Eddy and Alice, all the impromptu trail angels along the way, my parents, Kim, Carlos, and anyone else I've neglected to mention. Extra thanks to my brother Tom, and of course the most thanks to Chris, who was with me virtually every step of the way. Thanks.

More to come,

Will
