Faces of the PCT  

I am by nature an introvert.  I enjoy being around people but at the end of the day, what I need is to be by myself to recharge. I chose to do a Northbound Hike, because I thought that I would be around people and hopefully form a few friendships.  I wanted to meet like minded people who were excited for their adventure of a lifetime. I never expected that I would meet friends who I now consider family.  And now that this adventure is over, I miss them dearly.  So much, that the hardest part of not being on trail is not being around them every day, even when we drove each other nuts. Here they are, starting with Team Cuddle Puddle, and the rest are in order that I met them.
