090 Hiking for Dad on the Pacific Northwest Trail
Analeise Dowd had a goal to thru hike the Pacific Northwest Trail this past summer. In her first leg of the trail, she injured her knee and was forced to slow down. This opened the opportunities for more pictures!
With the injury, Analeise was hiking only about 15 miles a day, which is not a lot of mileage for a typical thru hiker.
In episode 60 Dowd's plans to blog from the trail and update her website were one of the things she was looking forward to. With a lack of service along the PNT she ended up not blogging a whole lot, though she has been going back and updating it in post.
Thumbelina was a trail name she picked up this summer as a trail name. On top of her knee issues, she also had shoe issues and lost some toenails. We also discuss some of the trail conditions on certain sections.
