I had to face reality about my car being destroyed in the desert. I didn’t know what to do, but my encouraging, famous Airbnb host had words of encouragement. She helped me to make a decision about what I’d do next and was so inspirational, she assured me that everything happens for a reason.
I was feeling great until my car started to shake. I pulled over in the middle of nowhere, where I miraculously had cell service. While I waited hours for a tow truck, I met characters that made me feel like I was in a horror movie. This was one of the worst moments of my travel journey.
I was driving to a gas station in Port Hedland when a 6.6 earthquake shook the area. The credit card machines stopped working and the town was shook up. I was about to drive a few hours north to camp at Eighty Mile Beach – directly across from the epicenter that steamed from the ocean.
Weathered: Finding Strength on the John Muir Trail
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.
From readers favorite: “For a fantastic story about a determined woman’s physical and personal journey, I recommend Weathered: Finding Strength on the John Muir Trail by Christy Teglo.”
