When the woman couldn't get to the mountains, I decided to take walk on the wild side with Cheryl Strayed's autobiographical drama, Wild.
Her journey is as much on the recovery trail as it on the Pacific Coastal track. Her walk through the Sierra Nevada is hippy trippy, as much in her head as in the scenery.
Both are scary places.
Prepare for bad packing, bears and breakdowns as she tries to find peace in nature and in herself.
You never know what lies beyond the next bend.
