The Pacific Crest Trail Association posted an article I wrote for them about the end of my hike. The article is linked here.
There was more danger at the finish than perhaps understood by those that followed the blog. By all accounts I've come across, I was the last to finish. One other hiker behind me has yet to be found.
(On a less somber note, if you look closely at the article you might notice something that I have not publicly explained.)
The Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA) is a private organization that plans, protects, and promotes the Pacific Crest Trail. The PCTA's work is invaluable. Through a system of volunteers, donations, and staff they are able to preserve the PCT for generations to come.
