Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) Slideshow | 2012

In 2012, the PCT represented the 10th of the 12 Long Walks series. It was the only one of the dozen hikes that I had previously done (2007).

It was a trek that turned out to be a lot more eventful and challenging than I’d anticipated. An encounter with Poodle dog bush in southern CA, 700 miles of snowbound terrain in OR & WA and a case of knee tendonitis I couldn’t shake, meant that the trip ended up taking a couple of weeks longer than anticipated.
