I spent mid-July to mid-September of 2013 hiking across the Pacific Northwest on the Pacific Northwest Trail. The route begins at the eastern side of Glacier National Park in Montana and travels west across Western Montana, the Idaho Panhandle, Washington State, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Peninsula to finish at the Pacific Ocean. I hiked solo and unsupported.

I kept a blog of my trip at


where you can also find gear lists, logistical details, and more.
