Pacific Crest Trail 2009 ~ Part 35




From Hart's Pass we had a mere 34 miles left to reach the Canadian Border




The weather was perfect that allowed us to slurp up the views as well as the mountain fresh spring water.




At Rock Pass we ran into a few mule trains transporting deer hunters for the season that was about to open.




At Woody Pass the scenery burst open to fill our Eyes.




In the photo below, we could see Canada straight ahead of us.




To the west we had awesome scenes of North Cascades National Park and the towering Mount Baker which I can see outside the window from here in Ferndale, WA.




What a perfect way to end such an epic Odyssey.  




The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail can truly allow One to live their lives to the fullest.




There I am along with Three Fools Peak.  It feels good to be a Wandering Fool.




Stacey and I had hiked through the Pasayten Wilderness from west to east when we hiked the 1,200 mile long Pacific Northwest Trail that starts on the Olympic Outer Coast of Washington State and ends at Glacier National Park in Montana.




I love hiking so much, that it truly has become a vocation.




At Hopkins Lake and Pass we have only five miles to go.




So we begin our descent to the finishing line.




The border actually has a clear cut marking the boundary.




It is September 13th at 8 a.m. and we have found our conclusion that leads us into a new beginning.




We had just hiked about 2,700 miles over four and half months time.
But we truly found our Home with each carefully planted step on the Trail of Life. 
Thank you for sharing our adventure with us.  We hope this inspires you too to venture outside the box of Normalcy.  Life is truly an epic Journey.






Where we began our 2,700 mile journey at the Mexican Border.


Happy Trails to Everyone,
Always!
