I laughed when my mom handed me Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. Me? Read a book about hiking? I never turn down a book recommendation, though. It took me almost a year to get around to it. A big motivator was the Semi-Charmed Summer 2014 Book Challenge. It fit in one of the categories so I read it on the plane on the way to Oregon.
I kicked myself for waiting so long to read the book. There's a good reason it's so popular. I'm not really great at giving book reports or reviews, so I'll just say that I highly recommend it and leave it at that.
Anyway, so the Bridge of the Gods connects Oregon to Washington and that's where Cheryl ends her journey. I jumped at the chance to see it. I love it when I can make a book and reality meet.
