Even for those who really love to walk through wilderness, the Triple Crown of hiking might never be more than a dream. Spanning more than 7000 miles, the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails together form a challenge that few have the luxury of attempting, let alone achieving. From the blistering inferno of the Mojave and Chihuahuan Deserts, to the dizzying heights of the Wind River Range and Sierra Nevada, and to the rarely paralleled ruggedness of New Hampshire’s Presidentials, perhaps it’s no surprise that fewer people have completed the trio of America’s greatest long distance trails than have been into space.
Join Jeff “Mountain Man” Brownscheidle as he retraces his own steps tackling a pursuit of the Triple Crown, a journey that spanned 16 years and shaped a path towards writing. Jeff will not only share gorgeous photography, anecdotes and wilderness wisdom, but also give insights into his use of Ulysses for writing and feeding his blog Stone and Sky on the trail.
