Back to the U.S.
I found out that my doctor passed away, which was very upsetting. I went for a hike to reflect. The next day, I took the ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles and returned to the U.S.
I was returning back to Los Angeles after traveling for four months. It felt strange because I no longer had a house to return to. My life was different now. I was a single woman with no home now.
A Typical Los Angeles Adventure
I returned to Los Angeles and stayed at the house of a rock star – Ryan Shuck. Then I went to a party on a boat and ended at a mansion.
Life Back in Los Angeles
I was back in LA after traveling for four months. I caught up with friends, doctor appointments, and adjusted to my new normal.
Cat on a Plane
I took my cat on an airplane from LA to Missouri. She was able to stay in her carrier under the seat in front of me. Overall, she did really well.

I stopped at Morro Bay and checked out Hearst Castle. The drive along the coast was breathtaking, like something out of a post card.

Throughout her wild 3-week journey backpacking 220+ miles in the California Sierra Mountains, Christy encountered freezing temperatures, pelting hail storms, and losing her way, but found trail family, incredible views, and experiences that would change her life forever. Hiking up and over ten different mountain passes gave Christy a lot of time to think about why her nine-year marriage was falling apart, gave her the chance to truly embody her individualism, time to make new friends, and the strength she would need on and off the trail. Her life could never again be the same.
This is one woman’s account of the three weeks she spent on the iconic trail.
