Trans-America Trail - the end

The official endpoint of the TAT.

We reached the Pacific Coast in Oregon, but we didn't complete the last kilometres on the Trans-America Trail. Because of a tight schedule and also since Thierry's luggage rack broke, we finished on normal roads.

After Thierry and Alvaro were gone, I spent nearly two weeks on the coast relaxing and waiting for various packages. Then, I decided to complete the last segment of the TAT the three of us didn't do.

Here are a few days on the TAT in solo. I started from the final point and I go back east.

I succeeded in doing most of the final segment of the TAT in solo. However, there were a few minor problems. On these photos, a rockslide obstructs the trail. It seems there is enough space, but the motorbike and the panniers are too wide to pass along the path... There is a steep slope on one side of the trail.

The Trans-America Trail in Oregon is mainly in national forests. Scenery is great, but in October, cold temperature is already present in the mountains.
