To create this spectacular photobook, we hiked the entire 2660-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. Living in the wilderness for over five months, Chris photographed the starkly beautiful deserts of southern California, the deep blue alpine lakes and snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the volcanoes and lush forests of Oregon and Washington. The journey was challenging, inspiring, and visually stunning. Chris’s landscape photographs portray the essence of each section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Every image is powerful. Viewed in sequence, these photographs take you on a journey through some of the most beautiful and compelling landscapes in the world.


Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

Hiking the 2,650-Mile Pacific Crest Trail

Stretching 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada, the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) meanders through harsh desert terrain, roller coasters up and down 13,000-foot Sierra peaks, and winds its way through the vast, pristine wildernesses of Oregon and Washington. In total, it crosses 25 national forests and 7 national parks, all of which greatly vary in temperature, terrain, and climate.

For those seeking to “through-hike” the trail — that is, hike it from end-to-end in a single trip — the journey will take 135 to 150 days to complete. Along the way, a hiker will wear through 4 or 5 pairs of shoes, consume some 600,000 calories (mostly in the form of energy bars and freeze-dried foods), and take 6 million steps. It’s not an undertaking for the weak-willed: less than 50% who set out to reach Canada make it there — and those who do must maintain a 20-25 mile per day pace to beat the early snowfall in Northern Washington.

Pacific Crest Trail – Callahan’s Mountain Lodge

Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail – Welcome Pacific Crest Trail Hikers! Are you ready for 2017?  We are 🙂 Callahan’s Lodge is delighted to be on your path whether you are a thru hiker or…



Going North, approximately five miles after crossing the Mt. Ashland Ski Road, the PCT will cross 3 dirt roads spaced fairly close together. Above the 3rd road, there is a small rectangular, wooden, directional Callahan’s sign posted high on a tree. Follow that road straight down the mountain approximately 400′. Cross a dirt road straight down to the railroad yard and across the RR tracks in a northeasterly direction. You will see another steep short dirt road leading to the intersection of Interstate 5 and Exit 6. Cross under the freeway. Callahan’s occupies the northeast quadrant of that intersection.
