We arrived in Victoria 3 days early to prepare for our trek. Our team had to attend an orientation, purchase our food supply for the trail, and pack our backpacks. We left early morning on Sept. 15th to start on the trail.
Day One - Sunday, September 15, 2019
Day one was one of the most difficult days. Starting with a 45 ft ladder to climb,extremely difficult terrain and full packs, it was a scary start. We began to question ourselves. Would we make it to the end. I had no doubts that we would!
Day Two - Monday, September 16, 2019
Day two was a little easier. However, we got some rains during the night, and some of the tents didn't hold up so well. So a few of my hikers were not as well rested as they should have been. The trail itself was a little easier, as planned but still very damp. After a good breakfast, we packed up camp and headed out on the trail.
