Wild Things: Day One on the PJF Trail

I’m a bit slow to the party in seeing the movie Wild but I just watched it this week, and I have to tell you, it was amazing.  I’ll admit, I haven’t read the book, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, but it’s now on reserve at my local library, and I’ll…
