This is the End

"This is the end
beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end..."
The Doors

And so it is, my PCT journey... Just past Sierra City I reached the 1200 mile mark. I knew I had reached the end of the trail. At that moment I looked up and a van was coming down from the Sierra Buttes trailhead. It was time to hitch back to Sierra City.... My journey complete 😊
