Default Chez Monique, WCT

Just a quick post that Chez Monique (Monique Knighton), an incredible part of the West Coast Trail experience, passed away today. She will be missed.

Myself and my group are saddened to hear this news. We were fortunate enough to have met her last August while passing through her establishment. She will not be soon forgotten. She was an iconic part of the WCT experience and those trekking through in the future will not know what they are missing. A sad day.

I met her twice - in 1998 and 2003.
And today I got my permit for my 2018 WCT with my daughter.
Sad, not to see that trail iconic.

Me too - taking my son. I was looking forward to introducing Monique to him.
