Cheryl Strayed’s Wild Takes Me Back to My Twenties

Who is this young person?  Reading Wild, Cheryl Strayed’s beautiful memoir, takes me back to my own sojourn on the Pacific Crest Trail in 1990.  This is me at Forester Pass, the PCT’s highest point.  I was there a few years before Cheryl, and wasn’t hiking alone like she was, but I did a lot of soul searching on that rugged trail, and wish we could have shared some stories around the campfire.  “What a great shot!” Cheryl wrote of my picture on Twitter .
