Our son Eric is finishing the last leg of the Pacific Crest Trail which terminates at E.C. Manning Park. If you see him approach it is because the trailer is familiar.

He is on the right with a hiking partner; we met them at McKenzie Pass near Sisters, OR earlier this month.

I'm so impressed with anyone who does the Pacific Crest...especially if one drags a trailer along.

Truly... I am impressed with that accomplishment.

Hi Len, Thank you for your stunning photographs! I live in Juneau, AK and the Fall bird migration has really started .... everyday I see new birds passing by my feeder. This morning there was an interesting article on NPR about White Pelicans showing up in Puget Sound (think they were talking about the Skagit River delta.... 200 miles north of their normal range.


I think having an Escape is the perfect platform to slow down and look deeper than the surface to 'discover' all kinds of fascinating wildlife.


Thank you again for your wonderful photography,


Tom

A few years ago we gave a ride to 4 hikers who had just finished the Trail. They had been walking for months. We took them as far as Hope, Bc where they went straight to the bar.

Thanks Tom. That is what I like about the Escape. I can hook up and camp for a night or 2 without a lot of preparation. Might take off next week to for a couple of nights depending on the weather.

I think you had it chillier then we did.

Hi Larry. I might have to get one of those buffs if I camp in these cold nights. I have always wanted to "drop my buff" and merge with another tribe.

Hi Len & Dian- they call folks like you Trail Angels You wouldn't believe how many are out there and what they do for these hikers. In Agua Dulce near Lancaster, CA there is a place called Hiker Heaven where PCT hikers can pitch their tents in someone's backyard and have their laundry done while they are fed- all for free! Other random acts of kindness abound for these folks and for those willing to share a ride for them back to trail after picking up packages of food or gear you can often hear some amazing tales.

Nice to hear this is happening on the PCT. Same thing on the Appalachian Trail. My father did 2 months (NJ to NH) and encountered many acts of kindness. People gave him food, let him borrow a vehicle to go into town, or allowed him to stay on their property or in their home. We met someone at one of the trailheads and got his number. A little later in the trip my father needed some supplies and I mailed them to his house and this man drove north and delivered the items to my father at a road crossing. Thankfully the people that have a love and respect for the outdoors are usually also very nice.
