Description: Was it simply luck that had caused her to turn down this street? In any event, it lead to the hostel she had been searching for and there she met a group of sad and teary eyed fellow hikers. It was late in the hiking season and an early snow storm had buried the official trail under four feet of snow. But there was an alternate trail at a lower elevation leading to the Canadian border. The group informed her that this trail too was closed, not from snow but from bureaucratic infighting in Washington D.C. It was another government shutdown and the trail head beginning at the Ross Lake National Recreational Area was closed. Park service personnel were preventing any visitors from entering the NRA. It was less than 20 miles to the Canadian border; after five months on the trail Kelly was not going to let Washington bureaucrats keep her from completing her journey. Pulling on her last pair of dry socks, her Gabby Maria Christmas Camper Crew Socks, for courage and comfort, she waiting until the patrol left for the night, then scrambled up the trail and walked all night. Two days later, she crossed into Canada, only to be apprehended by the Canadian police, placed in handcuffs and taken to jail. But she completed the 2,650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail and for that accomplishment, jail was a small price to pay.
