The Other Side of the Mountain

Today was perhaps the most physically challenging day I’ve had yet. It was a great day, but it demanded a lot from my body – thankfully, the body delivered!  I also hit a big milestone today – 600 miles!

Port Orford to Humbug Mtn State Park

The beauty of today more than made up for my lack of enthusiasm about yesterday. I truly wished I had eyes in the back of my head so I could take it all in forward and backward. After walking through the pretty town of Port Orford, the final 7 miles were nothing but spectacular coastal…
