Unfinished business

Posted by

Having walked 2,590 miles from the Mexican border towards the Canadian border on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018, I was devastated to learn that the trail was officially closed at Rainy Pass due to a wildfire, so close to the end of such an epic trip. Not only did the trail closure mean the last sixty miles of trail were off limits, it meant that I could no longer use my permit to cross from the US into Canada on the trail either.

Having to call it quits at Rainy Pass was a huge kick in the guts.   But little did I know at the time that I would have to abandon the trail at that point anyway.

A deep sense of loss hung with me and to be honest it never really went away, even after returning home. I had unfinished business out there on the PCT.

Those last 60 miles of trail alluded me and for months afterwards I was consumed with the desire to go back and finish them.  And of course, in July 2019, I did.

But it is only now, after about six months, that I have finally found some time to pull together my footage and massage it into another mini walkumentary.
