It seems apropos that around the same time that I have become obsessed with the Pacific Crest Trail, Mountaineers Books has released their two volume Pacific Crest Trailside Reader. Separated into a California volume and an Oregon & Washington volume, the readers are anthologies of writings about the trail. The selections range from personal journals, to historical accounts and trail poetry.
I’ve been thinking about being out on the trail. The daily grind has been a bit of a grind lately and it is easy to hear the call of the woods. Over the last couple of years, I have been thinking more and more about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. I’ve been running and hiking longer distances with the thought spending days on the trail.
