2005 Pacific Crest Trail:


pct_map.jpg The Chronicles of Goodfoot and Toaster:
(aka Samantha and Gabriel)

On April 17, 2005 my partner and I set out from the Mexican border for a six-month backpacking expedition to reach Canada by way of the Pacific Crest Trail. The PCT travels over 2650 miles through California, Oregon and Washington. It traverses a wide variety of landscapes ranging from the waterless deserts of southern California to glacier-capped peaks of the Pacific Northwest. This trip took years to plan, and was more eventful and inspiring then we ever could have imagined. Due to injury and illness, we did admittedly have to skip a few notable sections of the trail this season. Yet by the end, we completed over 2400 miles and gained a much greater respect for nature (as well as our sore feet).

During the course of the adventure, we logged hundreds of journals, took thousands of pictures and even captured a few short movies. Now that the trip is at an end, I have taken some time to compile everything onto this site and plan to update it from time to time. Please have a look around and enjoy yourself. The links below will lead you to the individual sections of the site. Make sure to click on the photo icons to display the images at a higher resolution. Also, we would like to thank everyone who have and continue to support us in our endeavors. Please feel free to drop us a line at trailb@gmail.com to let us know what you think...

Here's a GPS map of all the logs...
