Rookies In The Wild

Interstate Five may be the main travel artery in our region, but the Pacific Crest Trail is our sidewalk. 

People come from far and wide to hike the PCT, for hours or even weeks. 

John Riha and his son gave the PCT a whirl. 

And that might not have been a great idea, in hindsight... neither was particularly trail-savvy, and they chose a portion through the rugged Trinity Alps. 

At least John, who lives in Ashland, got a good story out of it... a story he tells in his book Rookies in the Wild: Fear and Gloaming on the Pacific Crest Trail.
