PCT 2000 - Jim Bruton's Thru Hike


I am off the trail. I reached Fish Lake, Oregon. This was 2/3 of the PCT. While I did not complete a Mexico to Canada thru-hike, I did extend my "personal best" distance by more than a factor of two, and learned, I think, a great deal along the way. That's not to mention that it was just a wonderful way to spend 3-1/2 months.

Physically I was pretty worn out, but now I'm fully recovered. I will be posting selected pictures here through the end of my journey. Thanks for visiting - enjoy the pictures.
