For the Rocky Mountaineers Feb. 11th, 2014 meeting Jordan Nelson will present on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from north to south. Jordan Nelson is 26 years old and graduated from college in 2010. He has had a lifelong connection with the outdoors that started while hunting in the northern woods of Wisconsin at 4 years old and continues today. Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail was the first of any long distance hike he had ever attempted. He started July 3rd in Washington and finished November 13th in Southern California. The presentation he will be giving will include answers to frequently asked questions, a description of the trail, and why he chose to go “backwards” or southbound instead of the more common northbound route.
