Through-Hiking Will Break Your Heart by Carrot Quinn

I'm a sucker for thru-hiking journals. This one is from a women that did the Pacific Crest Trail. She made it to the end, barely. It's really a journal of suffering; of sore feet, of being cold or hot, or wet, or hungry, or thirsty, or tired, or disillusioned, or lost. Not that she doesn't find enjoyment along the way, because she does. I suspect a lot of other hiking writers gloss over the bad parts. Carrot didn't do that.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
