Outdoor photographer and writer Phillip Kramer found himself working too much and not outside having enough fun. So, in 2013 he sat down and gave some thought to his predicament. His decision was to thru hike the 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail. Thinking that he would be off on his own enjoying solitude, he quickly discovered this is not the case. However, even though he was on the trail with a bunch of new thru hiking friends, Phillip realized how revitalizing 6 months on the trail can be.
