I’ve included some pictures this time!!
It’s hard to describe the feeling I had when touching the PCT midpoint. On one hand, it’s a huge accomplishment for an old guy like me. After all, it’s not everyday that 57 year old men get up and push their bodies to the extreme for 12 hours a day…month after month. On the other hand, I’m only halfway to Canada with only half of my milestones accomplished. I am choosing to look at it this way. My cup is half full, not half empty. From here on, I add more and more to that cup until it is completely full.
Let’s review my milestones:
1-Muster the courage to start this crazy journey (check)
2-Survive the Sierras (check)
3-Reach the PCT midpoint (check)
4-Leave California!!! (open item)
5-Cross the Bridge of the Gods (open item)
6-Touch the northern terminus (open item)
Lately, this is a typical view after a summit.
Until we meet again.
