Back to the Pacific Crest Trail in 2009 for another jaunt from Mexico to Canada.
It was great to revisit the trail and ponder how different my experiences were from year to year. On my first thru hike of this trail, I was still a novice hiker and lacked any real experience. This time I felt confident and calm, assured that my skills were adequate for anything the trail could throw my way.
After reaching Canada, I turned around and walked back to Rainy Pass. It was a neat way to end the hike, as I got to see my trail friends once again, including some I had passed months ago!
