Good Bye Arizona

I still can’t believe we are home. It feels so strange and normal all at once. I wake up in a soft bed, it feels like a warm marshmallow after sleeping on the ground. The realization that I don’t have to hike today hits me with a wave of excitement and depression all at once.... Continue Reading →

Not Today Cow Poopy Water

Journal Entry- October 20th, 2021 We hike 20 miles today. There is a lot of flat road walking in this section, it makes the miles feel longer. It’s warming up a bit though so I put on shorts. It’s the little things. We see a water cash randomly on the side of the road and... Continue Reading →
