Welcome to NZ Hikers trail journal

Welcome to the first post on NZ Hikers. This journal will encompass the experiences of three New Zealanders as we hike (backpack for the Americans) along the 2,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail (www.pcta.org). The trail stretches from border to border, Mexico to Canada, and includes mountains, deserts, forests, lakes, and towns. Similar in style to the more well-known Appalachian trail, but much much more environmentally diverse, we cross through California, Oregon, and Washington states. Our trip begins on April the 26th, 2013, and for more than five months I will post photos and experiences provided by the challenge of the trail. I hope I can keep it entertaining for those at home interested in our trip, even during the darkest and most exhausting days. I just hope those days don’t come too soon.
