Have you ever thought of hiking the PCT? 🥾⁠

Our latest issue has the first of five stories in a series by Matt Johanson who has been sectioning the PCT for the past twenty plus years. ⁠

Matt recently took a one-year leave from teaching at Castro Valley High School to complete the remaining 2,250 miles.⁠

Lucky for Matt, his wife Karen has encouraged him to live his dream and has been providing support along the way. ⁠

📸 Matt is pictured here with his wife Karen, and their two dogs Sam and Elliot. ⁠

In case you missed it, Yosemite announced yesterday that Big Oak Flat Road (continuation of Highway 120 west into Yosemite) is closed from just inside the park boundary to Merced Grove.⁠

"The road has a crack that is about 200 feet long and up to four feet deep. The road surface has moved two to three inches vertically and horizontally and is continuing to move.⁠

The embankment below the road has moved as much as 15 feet downslope and has significant water flow through it."⁠

The road will be closed at least until mid-June and possibly into July. ⁠
