Santa Barbara Hikes

Hiking the PCT

Diane's PCT Hike(s)

I kept journals during my two PCT sections.

In 2008 I started at the Mexican Border and reached Mt. Shasta. My 2008 PCT journal is a book. I can email you an HTML version of my 2008 journal if you really want one. Just contact me and ask.

In 2009, I hiked from my house to the PCT just a little beyond its mile 500, then hiked to Lone Pine, then skipped around the trail completing parts I missed in 2008, then returned to where I left off near Mt. Shasta and hiked all the way to Canada. My 2009 PCT journal is also a book. It has all the journal entries I kept that never published online. You can read my online trail journal, too.
