Day 92: Peak to Peak Gondola
I took the Peak to Peak gondola up to the top of the mountain and then across on the world’s longest continuous lift. The views were awesome. Then I met up with the musician that I met earlier on Tinder.
Days 93-94: Ziplining Away
I zip-lined through the trees on Whistler mountain. The lines were long and fast! It was great weather, but they even do it in the winter. It was a great way to end my time in Whistler.
Day 95: Train Wreck and Suspension Bridge
The train wreck trail is a unique experience with damaged train cars with spray paint all over them. It’s fun to explore. I also checked out the suspension bridge in Vancouver, which had tree houses and bridges to explore too.
Day 96-97: Whales in Tofino, Vancouver Island
I drove across Vancouver Island to Tofino. I went on two short hikes and then went on a whale watching tour. We even had a baby whale circling our boat.
Day 98: Thoughts Driving on Vancouver Island
It isn’t easy to decide where to go when you can go anywhere. There’s immense pressure not to make the wrong decision. I also realized that traveling long term meant that I might not be able to date. If I traveled for two years, that meant no dating for two years.
Days 99-100: Victoria, British Columbia
I went on a bike tour in Victoria, which was a great way to explore the city and learn some history. I also did a walking ghost tour.

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.
