PCT -Bears, Canada & Back to Reality

37 Comments

My daughter’s epic summer journey on the PCT ended on September 9th.  She hiked from the Columbia River, at the Bridge of the Gods, to Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia.  It was done in sections, two alone, one with her husband, and one with her dad.

I dropped her and her Dad off at Stevens Pass on August 26th.

They saw 9 bears between there and the next time I resupplied them at Rainy Pass.  More

My daughter’s hike on the Pacific Crest Trail continues…and I am more amazed at her tenacity every day.  I’m so grateful she has a GPS device that allows her to send messages in addition to ‘pinging’ her location when she has service.  She has been faithful to let us know where she is each day, and we’ve seen her about once a week when she crosses into civilization and we resupply her.

She’s grubby and hungry when she walks off the trail, and we’re sure glad to see her!

She hit mile 325 when she made it to Steven’s Pass over the weekend.  We picked her up there and brought her home for a 36 hour rest and resupply.  She’s done about 275 miles alone, meeting some interesting characters along the way.  Her husband did a stretch between Mt. Rainier and Snoqualmie Pass with her.  They experienced rain, thunder, lightening, hail, and a new forest fire! More

Our daughter is fulfilling a Bucket List dream, and it’s got my momma heart twisted all sorts of ways.  I’m proud, immensely proud, but of course I’m also nervous.
