Day 88 – 1,130 trail miles north,

Ward Peak, Northern California

"Boy that was a long way up!" exclaims the day-hiker, a mile or two from the road. "Where are you coming from?"

"Oh, Mexico," I say coolly, and saunter on by.

Faced with the prospect of a nine-to-five job, Natasha Carver instead decided to walk from Mexico to Canada. She followed the Pacific Crest Trail – 2,658 miles through the wildernesses of California, Oregon and Washington – encountering rattlesnakes and bears, and learning to survive with her own company. Based on her journals, Walking Down a Dream is a humorous account of despair, excitement and resolve. The book describes a geographical and personal journey through desert, snow, blisters and rehydrated pasta, and introduces several eccentric characters, including Staggering Willy, Wonderwoman and the Wolfpack.
