Overview

The Pacific Crest Trail runs from the Mexican border in California to the Canadian border in Washington. In 2009, Diane decided to hike from her front door in Santa Barbara, through the Los Padres National Forest and into the desert to meet the Pacific Crest Trail and follow it to Canada. Each night she recorded her experiences, the people she met along the way, the places visited and the adventures of hiking solo in nature's most beautiful and wild places. Trail Magic, the serendipity of the trail, ensured safe passage through swollen rivers, Biblical mosquitoes and more than one wrong turn. This book contains her trail journal.

Reading this account of this couples journey on the PCT was really like reading two stories. First, the couple begins this amazing challenge together, then injury forces the husband to make a difficult decission to leave the trail. The second story begins as Diane continues on hiking solo. Like sections of the PCT, both story lines are interesting. As a woman who has backpacked solo, I especially enjoyed the aspects of Diane's trip that spoke to being female in the backcountry. Diane challenged herself, learned much about herself, and obviously dearly loves being in the backcountry. Kudos for sharing your experience....I greatly enjoyed it!
