Pacific Crest Trail
At the age of 26, best-selling author ("Wild") Cheryl Strayed strapped on a backpack and solo hiked the 1,100-mile Pacific Crest Trail. Over the course of 94 days she traveled from Mojave, California to the Bridge of the Gods in Cascade Locks Oregon, just outside of Portland where she lives today. Four years after losing her mother to cancer, and seeing her family scattered and her marriage destroyed, Strayed ventured into the wilds in order to find a part of herself she felt was missing.
