Written and edited on trail, August 25th, 2016 Greetings from Castle Crags State Park, near Mt. Shasta, California!

It’s hard to imagine, … Continue reading 454 Miles Later

*written and edited on trail Greetings from the beautiful Warner Springs and the home to my first “zero” day on the Pacific Crest Trail.
