Suffering from trail-induced PTSD?
For former long-distance hikers who are suffering from Post-Trail-Separation-Discouragement, find a mountain town with a ski area nearby and let its zeal for outdoor activities and adventures refill your aching soul!
I lived in the Lake Tahoe area for many years after my PCT and CDT hikes and the influence really helps keep you centered and connected with the values I learned on the long-trail!
It’s ok to pine for the trail life, but sometimes we do have to live in society and have an income. So, for those times, be they for months or years, let them be amongst the reassuring voices of the Jeffery Pine, Stellar Jay, Mountain Chickadee, tumbling stream, Hoary Marmot, and grazing deer!
