Have you ever thought of hiking the PCT? 🥾⁠

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. ⁠
