    Trail Angel Stories: Charlene

    There is In a town called Burney, the Word of Life Church offers hikers a free place to stay.

In the morning, they opened their coffee bar to serve free coffee to hikers. Charlene took our orders with a smile and asked us about our trek while she put together our iced lattes. 

    I love these stays where communities open up their spaces to hikers. A member of the congregation, Mustache, a section hiker himself, spent time conversing with us the night prior. A couple showed up the same evening to drop off postage-stamped envelopes with a gentle reminder to write home to our loved ones. I really appreciate the personal interaction and care that complete strangers show us.
