The Pacific Crest Trail

The Pacific Crest Trail is a 2653 mile footpath that travels from the Canadian border in Northern Washington to the Mexican border in Southern California. The trail passes through the states of Washington, Oregon, and California. Most thru-hikers take 5 months to complete the journey.

On June 20, 2019 we set out from the Canadian border in northern Washington with the desire to complete the Pacific Crest Trail as one continuous hike, aka a thru-hike. With our hopes high we hiked through rain, sleet, snow, and freezing temperatures along the North Cascade mountains. Sadly, our hike ended before we made it out of the state of Washington due to a pesky stress fracture. With the healing time being six weeks or more, finishing the hike would not be possible. Keeping things positive, we took a few weeks to recover then set our sights on Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Even though we did not complete our hike we spent two weeks in the beautiful state of Washington and four weeks visiting two amazing countries. As for the PCT, for now we say goodbye but one day we will return to finish what we started.
