Sierra Nevada In 2016 I hiked a trail in the US named the Pacific Crest Trail, the PCT.The trail runs from the border of Mexico near San Diego and ends at the border of Canada. Weaving it’s way up through California, Oregon and Washington states. The whole trail is over 2500 miles, I managed 1800 of them over 5 months. An adventure that changed, educated, enlightened and humbled me. This is a scene from The Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. In Kings Canyon where we were about to approach Forrester Pass, the highest point on the PCT at 13,500ft. A storm approached behind us as we climbed up to the pass and engulfed us so we had little visibility. This was mid June and the storm was unexpected. It made it one of the scariest and most exhilarating days on the trail, one I shall never forget. My food supply had been low for a few days by this point and I’d had to ration myself with far less calories than I physically needed. I ran out of food the next day but we had planned to hike out of Kearsage pass which was the next way out to civilisation. A long and truly unforgettable hike where I learned how amazing our bodies truly are.
