We’re fortunate to live in an area with world-class wilderness hiking opportunities quite close at hand. We hike pretty much year-round, trying to spend as much time as possible in the high country during the summer and staying in shape with low-country hikes during the cool rainy season.
CFL was planning to do a southbound through-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail (approximately 2,650 miles from Canada to Mexico) with his daughter in 2015. It’s now postponed to 2016, which would give me another year to get some backpacking experience. I may decide to do more than be chief trail blogger and food-package-sender. Maybe I’ll through-hike with them!
Here are some photos of nearby places we’ve hiked recently.
