"Wild" by Cheryl Strayed.

“Wild” by Cheryl Strayed.

I have been putting off reading this book for far too long.  I am not sure what was intimidating about it to me – perhaps I was scared that it would ignite something in me that couldn’t be snuffed.

I have set a goal for myself for 2015, and it is to hike the length of a beautiful trail near where I live that is 890km end-to-end.  I will not be doing this all at once (which I am told takes 30 days), but in segments.  I would like to finish the gorgeous end of the hike in a few days’ stretch.

So, what better time to dive into “Wild” then while planning my own hiking goals for the year?
