I finished my 2600+ mile hike on September 18th after 104 days of hiking. I averaged a marathon a day (26 miles), my longest day was 52 miles and I took a total of 4 zero days. I plan on hiking it again in the near future.
There really is not much else to say about it! I can tell you all about the beautiful vistas, the crisp mountain springs, the glacial melt stream crossing, my campspots, wildlife, etc... but you won't understand. No one, unless they've hiked the trail, will understand what I felt and experienced for those 4 months. If, however, you need some inspiration to go and hike the trail for yourself hopefully these photos will do it!
