While celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of a new one, Jeffrey Winchester, 46, of Pollock Pines, will likely look back on the trip of a lifetime. He spent four months thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and he beat the odds, completing his trek at the northern terminus Sept. 30. A record number of hikers applied to tackle the PCT in 2011 but only a small percentage are able to finish in any given year.
