We’re very excited to announce that we have a very nice article written by Ken Ilgunas (author of Walden on Wheels, Trespassing across America, and This Land Is Our Land) that appears in the latest issue (June 2018) of Backpacker Magazine. Ken did an outstanding job of portraying the trail in a positive, yet realistic light. In short, he gets it. Not everyone will, but that’s OK. Here is a link to the article:
