Anne O'Regan on the Pacific Crest Trail.

Anne O’Regan will talk about her five-month trek from Campo, Calif. on the Mexico border along the Pacific Crest Trail to Manning Park, Canada at the Ridgefield Library, 472 Main Street, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m.

In 2010, Anne O’Regan left her home in Boston and traveled west to do what, on average, only 300 people accomplish each year. She backpacked 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest trail traveling through California, Oregon and Washington. O’Regan will share tales from the trail and offer a unique visual presentation gleaned from more than 3,000 photographs taken along the way.

O’Regan spent most of her adult life living and working in downtown Boston and then left corporate America to venture west and north to walk the Pacific Crest Trail and other long trails including the Colorado Trail, The John Muir (twice), and Vermont’s Long Trail (twice). O’Regan is the author of, Tamed – A City Girl Walks from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. Her book will be available at her presentation. This program is part of the Noreen L. Papa – Mothers: Live Your Life series of health and wellness programs.
