Arriving in San Francisco Molly and Ethan picked up a sweet Jeep Wrangler SUV and drove down to Santa Cruz to stay with cousin Amy’s lovely friends Suna and Josh. The next day it was off to REI to sort out their trail gear, before the wonderful drive down Highway 1 to Los Angeles and on to San Diego to stay with legendary Trail Angels Scout and Frodo.
Friends and family gathered at Tom and Lisa’s to give Molly and Ethan a proper send-off and wish them well on their trip. Ethan’s mum Denise made a special cake!
In April 2019 Molly Meadows and Ethan Wrigglesworth will begin hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada a total of 2,650 miles through California, Oregon, and Washington. It generally takes the entire snow-free season – about five months – to complete the trail.
