One Last Love Letter To Western States

One Last Love Letter To Western States

The river crossing itself makes everything seem okay. We have been through the good times and bad times and our relationship becomes somewhat even as we cross the river. Even on the gut-wrenching climb up to Green Gate, we seem to maintain a truce. Then, the trail gives way to the run into Auburn Lakes Trail and Brown’s Bar. These are the trails that have made you famous and, again and again, over the last 40 years, here is where you tend to get the last laugh. I try to hold you at bay in this stretch even, from time to time, turning myself inside out just to win a pointless argument. Of course, you always win and we roll into Brown’s Bar with 10 miles to go, once again fighting the demons of the Western States Trail.
