Magic bus

ak

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 17.8 miles


Myself and 7 other people took off 'into the wild' to see the bus where Christopher McCandless took his last breath.

Taking off 'into the wild' was a really inspiring journey, all of us got to see firsthand what it was that drew Christopher into the wilderness, we got to feel the strange isolation of the land, the way it pulls parts of your personality into view that were never seen before. I discovered in myself a strength I hadn't known before, I carried a heavy pack, and in reality a lot of insecurities out there with me, only to discover there's more to me than I thought.  all in all, it was a great hike, through beautiful terrain, and I hope to hear of more people making the trek out there!
