There are many challenges to life on the Trail and even more rewards. Like marveling at sights few will ever see. Viewing wildlife in their natural habitat. Dishing up creative new cuisine. And taking the road far-less-traveled, if it was ever traveled at all. No, the experience isn’t exactly like a five-star hotel. But the 1,000,000-star sky has a way of making up for it.
