A Journey from Lost to Found

 

Today was supposed to be swim-day but instead I walked 30-or-so miles of the Pacific Crest Trail - well, as a mental traveller and with the help of the first sixty pages of Cheryl Strayed's book "WILD - A Journey from Lost to Found".

In the summer of 1995, 26-year-old Cheryl Strayed, carrying a backpack nearly half her weight, embarked on a solo 1,100-mile trek along the Pacific Crest Trail which stretches across nine mountain ranges, from the California-Mexico border to Canada.

As soon as I've reached the Bridge of the Gods, I shall watch the movie.
