KNEE SURGERY DAY! I bet you’re all as sick of hearing about my knees as I am talking about them 😂 I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal to most but I’ve been waiting 18 years for this surgery. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t super anxious today as being a very active person, the down time will be tough. But hopefully after it all I will come back better and stronger! I’ve been amazed by the amount of love and support from everyone and just wanted to say a huge thank you! I appreciate all your sweet messages, comments, thoughtful gestures and good vibes you’ve been sending. It honestly means the world and I really appreciate it! I’ll be laying pretty low for the next while as I focus on recovery but don’t worry I’ll be back on the mountain tops in no time! Photo Credit to my lovely friend 📸 @brookewillson •

Double Arch in "The Windows" area of Arches National Park in Utah. Double Arch is the park's second largest arch, measuring 112 feet tall and 144 feet long. The easy trail leading to it makes it one of the park's most popular attractions. The Windows in general is a good option if you're short on time and aren't interested in a strenuous hike. It's just 25 minutes from the visitor center, with several wide, easy trails through the formations. Photo taken June 19, 2007.
I wish I would’ve taken more photos and video while hiking the desert section in Southern California, along the PCT. This is one of the few photos I have of myself hiking this section, taken on trail as we left Lake Morena on Day Three.
I know a lot of people talk negatively about the desert. Before I got on trail, I was one of those people too. People hate the heat. They loathe the long and heavy water carries. Some even complain about the crowds on trail and in the towns. I figured the desert would be a miserable stretch spanning over 700 miles. Boy was I wrong.
There were plenty of rough parts in the desert, but there were plenty of beautiful stretches too. The views in the desert were amazing. I wish I would’ve gotten up earlier each morning to watch more sunrises on trail. I didn’t mind the heat. I got used to the heavy water carries. The crowds didn’t bother me because I enjoyed meeting other hikers on trail. In the desert is where I first met my trail family. I loved feeling the incredible sense of community out there. .
In 2019, I vow to take more photos and even more video of my hike, especially in the desert. This is, after all, where the whole PCT thru-hiking adventure begins.
