The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a long distance hiking trail from the Mexico/USA border to the USA/Canada border. It goes for over 2600 miles or 4200 kilometers, crossing the deserts of southern California, the Sierra Nevada mountains, the forests of northern California, and the Cascade mountains of Oregon and Washington.
In 2014, Jacob and Lorelei had a two week sampler of the PCT, hiking a section of the trail in Washington. In this time they hiked around 170 miles (approximately 275km). 170 miles of amazing forests, stunning mountains, beautiful lakes, huckleberries, wild blueberries, wild raspberries, and other wild berries they didn’t even know the name of (but they were delicious).
After two weeks, it was clear to them that they needed to come back to do the whole thing. To be honest, Lorelei only wanted to go back because of the berries. Jacob kept trying to tell her there wouldn’t be berries in the desert, but she didn’t seem to believe him.
