Running from Canada to Mexico, the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is 2,663 miles in length, and has the greatest elevation change of any America's National Scenic Trails. The PCT is renowned in the hiking community for its stunning scenery.
Bill "Skywalker" Walker, who has also hiked the Appalachian Trail and El Camino de Santiago, will share his experience and stories on the PCT and his struggles with extreme weight loss due to his height (6'11") at the REI store in Asheville next month. Bill will also talk about hiking in the extremes of terrain and climate of the trail, difference between the PCT and AT, how to plan a thru-hike, snow issues, the famed Mojave and the high Sierras.
The Georgia native is the author of Skywalker: Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as Skywalker: Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail.
His presentation will be held on 4/11/2012, from 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. at REI in Asheville. For more information, and to register, please click here.
