Last week, I posted the basics of my thru-hike in “The Colorado Trail: Route, Stats and Resources.”
Today, I pulled together a photo gallery that takes you through each day of my five-week hike in pictures.
After I returned home, I wrote an essay about my time on the trail called “The Motherload” that aired on Out There, a podcast that explores big questions through intimate stories in the outdoors.
“The Motherload” briefly describes why I left home in the first place, and offers a glimpse at my experiences before, during and after thru-hiking the Colorado Trail. It tells only a fraction of the story, but it’s a good summary.
I recently shared “Coyote’s Beauty Secrets” with Out There podcast and Misadventures magazine. It’s a story about body image, and how I learned to love the skin I’m in – thanks, in part, to one clever coyote on Day 23 of my hike.
A version of Coyote’s Beauty Secrets, and parts of The Motherload, will be in the book I’m writing: Serendipity on the Trail.
I plan to include stories about falling trees, lost children, how I earned my trail name Serendipity, how Slipshits earned his name, riding in the back of a sheriff’s car (twice), and more.
And if you’re curious how the book is coming along, sign up for my monthly newsletter (under the comments section below).
