Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling memoir Wild brought renewed attention to the Pacific Crest Trail, 2,659 mi. long trail that stretches from the Mexican-Californian border to British Columbia, Canada. Maybe you even thought about hiking the trail yourself … until you realized you don’t have the time, stamina, or outdoorsmanship to do so successfully. Fortunately, Rizzoli USA has you covered with their beautiful new book, The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail by Mark Larabee & Barney Scout Mann, with a foreword by the aforementioned Cheryl Strayed. Even if you can’t hike the trail for whatever reason, at least you can enjoy some of its most stunning scenes via the photographs found here.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
