Andrew Carter is a flip-flopper. As in, he’s attempting to complete the iconic 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from California’s border with Mexico all the way to Washington’s border with Canada — but not in one continuous hike. He’s tackling it section by section, dividing the journey into four segments.
Carter hiked two segments already, and almost immediately, his hopes of completing the entire PCT were dashed. On the first leg, he had to detour twice within Angeles National Forest and then again near Mount Jefferson due to closures from last year’s fires. On the second segment, he ran into a 160-mile trail closure because of the Dixie Fire. Then, when he saw smoke rising from the Lava Fire on Mount Shasta, he was forced to hike a grueling six miles extra to safety.
