By taking time out to examine many hiking trials in the area you are traveling to you can then pick and choose that are more favourable to you so that you can be assured that you will enjoy your hike.
You realize how long California is when you hike the whole way it took three months and one week to reach Oregon but I never got tired of the continually changing and always beautiful scenery. From Mt. Shasta on we had numerous forest fires causing hazy skies beautiful sunsets and closed trails and detours. For the last month we weren‘t sure we would be able to finish the trail at Manning Park. We did have to skip a section in Oregon due to fires but the final section before the Canadian border reopened just before we got there. Unlike some just ahead of us we were able to finish at the official terminating point and get our pictures at the border monument. That is the through-hiker‘s "summit" moment similar to when a mountaineer reaches the top of the mountain.
I started my hike on April 28 at the Mexican border. I was trying to finish in four months and I had already purchased my return ticket to Peru based on that schedule. The first week went well and then I started getting blisters. I was also hiker faster than most of the others so I was passing a lot of people but not spending much time with them and wasn‘t making any friendships with other hikers. After two weeks I had to take a few days off to let the blisters heal. I also realized that I needed to slow down and spend time with other hikers if I wanted to make friendships which was one of my goals for the hike. After leaving Big Bear CA I did slow down and started hiking with four other people. Two of them were section hiking and one had to stop due to injury but I hiked with go-Big the other one most of the way to the Oregon border.
