No One Will Truly Understand…

Snow has fallen on the Chilkoot Trail, obscuring the footprints of this season’sĀ travelersĀ  By now we’ve erased the memory cards in our cameras and filled them with other photos, our muscles have long-since recovered from the longs days and steep scrambling on the Golden Stairs. As the traces of our journey settles under the beginnings of a long winter, the memories of our time on the trail resurface.

“No one will truly understand what it is like to hike the Chilkoot, no matter how many pictures I take, or how many stories I tell.”

Who have you told about your journey on the Chilkoot Trail? What stories have become your favorite?
