    PCT Express with Heather "Anish" Anderson

    The Pacific Crest Trail is an ambitious undertaking for any through-hiker. With over 2660 miles of varied terrain from Mexico to Canada, the PCT offers plenty of physical and mental challenges. In 2013, Heather "Anish" Anderson not only completed the Pacific Crest Trail unsupported, a tremendous feat in itself, but did so by shattering the record time, finishing the entire trail in 60 days, 17 hours and 12 minutes!

    Join us at Feathered Friends June 12, 2014 at 7pm as Heather presents the challenges of pursuing such a difficult undertaking, and what it took to finish the Pacific Crest Trail, self-supported, in record time. Whether you are planning a full through-hike of your own on one of America's Triple Crown routes, or just enjoy the exceptional outdoor opportunities in Washington, this promises to be an insightful and exciting evening.
