On Mother’s Day, May 8, 2016, 34-year-old Kris Fowler set out the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,653 mile hike stretching from Mexico to Canada, all through the west coast of the United States. But on October 12, with less than 400 miles to go on the trail, Kris, who had stopped in Packwood Washington for supplies, set off to resume the PCT near White Pass in the Cascade mountain range. Kris was hoping to get ahead of a brewing storm, one that people would later claim was the biggest Washington State had experienced in decades. As other hikers left the trail to wait out the inclement weather, Kris, in his sandals, set off into the dense Washington wilderness and seemingly vanished into the thick wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.
