The Good, the Bad and the Unforgettable: Thru-Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail
with Dorothy Brown-Kwaiser June 28, 7 p.m. in the Estacada Library Flora Room
Every year hundreds of people leave behind jobs, families and creature comforts to hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail. Fewer than half finish this 2,669 mile expedition, but for the ones that do, their lives are changed forever.
Park ranger Dorothy Brown-Kwaiser offers a candid glimpse into the world of thru-hiking. From her first steps at the Mexican border with her never-been-backpacking cousin, to her final hobbles past the Canadian border with her dad, she’ll share the stories and photos that shaped her journey.
