A Blog about the walking activities of Mick & Gayle, from short strolls to Big Walks, interspersed with other random thoughts about things outdoor related.
The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began; Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can; Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way; Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say. [JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

There are about 30 PCT hikers here tonight - down from the peak of 87 at the end of last week. Lots of people on the trail this year, it seems.
