Because where’s the fun in that? #oztrailaustralia #findyourtrail
You know those communication things they have at a kids park where people talk through one side and you can hear it through another one 30 feet away? This reminds me of that. That and also an eagle with their mouth open.
Story-time has seen much of New Mexico @hikingthecdt. “I’m not an early riser,” he said. “Today I was real proud of myself for getting out of camp by 8:30. But I like to hike late anyway. Tonight I still have a few miles left in me #cdt2018 #cdt40 #findyourtrail #bravethecdt #newmexicotrue #landofenchantment #cdt

This little monster turns 16 next week. Hiking keeps her young and she can still rock more of a trail than you would think, but now and then she needs a little help. #campvictory #bendoregon #centraloregon #bendfit #peekapoo #dogsofinstagram #findyourtrail #hikingdog #emmabear
Today was perfect. 23 miles of soul aching beauty through accordion hill sides, in and out of every little drainage, each one it's own unique world. Below our northbound ribbon of dirt sprawled a Norman Rockwell landscape of rural America. Then, I had double tuna mac and cheese for dinner. PCT you are so kind to us, thank you, thank you, thank you. . . . #P3Hikers #PCT1968 #FindYourTrail#PacificCrestTrail #PCT #PCT2018 @pctassociation@ospreypacks@salomon
Since it's #EarthWeek and #NationalVolunteerWeek , I want to give a huge shout-out to @trashfreeearth for all that they do, as well as every other organization, group and person that springs into action, organizes such rewarding events and helps in the preservation of our beautiful environment! I am always humbled and grateful to volunteer and be a part of something so special - and to meet others who equally care so deeply about Nature. I also want to share the great news that I received today... I got accepted into a Master's program where I can start working with non-profits & learning more about their leadership and continuous efforts on conservation, preservation and helping the environment. It's exciting times and Nature/the Planet needs us more than ever right now. 🌎🌲♻️🌱 #EarthDayEveryDay . . . . #LeaveNoTrash #ProtectPublicLands #TrashFreeEarth #KeepItWild #UnitedOutside #EncuentraTuParque #DontFeedTheLandfill #ZeroLandfillInitiative #LoveYourPark #EarthDay #IAmAGeoscientist #DontLitter #PublicLands #abc7eyewitness #KeepItPublic #FindYourPark #RadParks #BeInconvenient #EnjoyYourWorld #360ForThePlanet #CreateYourTrail #LetsKeepItWild #EarthDayKeeper @leavenotracecenter @1percentftp
@morgandzak arrives in Lordsburg, New Mexico after a 27 mile day! @hikingthecdt Morgan and I parted this morning. My blisters were too painful. The Border Patrol was kind enough to give me a ride. Took Morgan’s heavy stuff. Gave her my extra snacks (not much btw) and she amazingly hiked on. And on. And on. Blazing boots! Yay Morgan! #cdt2018 #findyourtrail #bravethecdt #notaroadwalk #newmexicotrue #landofenchantment #altrarunning #olympustg5 #waymarkgearco #heavydutyultralight #walkfarwoman #cdt
Shop week has been a blast, with staff from all over the region coming together to prep for our Idaho crews that will soon be headed out to the field. Can't wait for long sweaty days and peaceful forest slumbers. 🌙🌲 #msr #backcountry #traillife #idaho #whisperlight
Day 13: Mile 168.5 - 179.4 Via Spitzler Alternate Trail Camped at 7000' on Spitzler Peak last night. It was so cold and windy, both my water bottles froze, but I managed to get a little water out for coffee and oatmeal this morning. . The hike down the alternate trail was interesting. It did snow as forecast, and I took a long time getting warm. I walked the entire way into town, and stopped for pizza before ending my day at an air bnb. . Zero day in Idyllwild tomorrow, and I'll be looking at getting a full length sleeping pad, and maybe new gloves. . #pct2018 #PCT1968 #P3Hikers #PacificCrestTrail #pcta #FindYourTrail #Salomon #ospreypacks @pctassociation @ospreypacks @salomon #idyllwild #hiking #california enhanced with #lensdistortions

The amazing thing about the PCT are these moments, when you come across the corner to a view like this. I was rushing to get to McDonald's in Cajon pass after a 4 days stretch but had to stop here to watch the clouds roll over the valley. #PCT1968 #pct2018 #ospreypacks #pctig #salomon #PacificCrestTrail #pct #FindYourTrail #P3Hikers #findyourpark #nature #summer #keepitwild #simplyadventure #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors #discoverearth  #makemoments #exploremore #stayandwander #goexplore #lovelifeoutside #staywild #getoutside #allaboutadventures #trailingadventures @salomon @ospreypacks @pctassociation

As National Volunteer Week continues, we want to thank all our Trails & Rails docents who board the train and travel along the California Coast educating passengers about the Anza Expedition. As Anza called out, "¡Vayan Subiendo!", the Train conductor will say, "All Aboard!" #Trails50 #NPSVolunteers #NationalVolunteerWeek #Trails &Rails #FindYourTrail #FindYourWay #NVW #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque (Image: Park Ranger and two volunteers smile for the camera during the annual volunteer training)
Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in the world #findyourtrail #finditohio #exploreohio #letsroamohio #ohioexplored #thisiswhyihike #fredrogers
Yeeehaw! Riding bikes is all about having fun. Like trying to pretend there's a nutty cow riding my bike! I can get pretty focused while on rides. But on beautiful sunny days cruising around my favourite trails, I was just enjoying the day, the sun, trails, and being out on my bike! #lovetheride #shadowgames #funwithlight #singletrack #mountainbiking #wildlycreative #mtblife #optoutside #ilovemybike #santacruznomad #findyourtrail #liveyouradventure #shadowart #shenanigans #silliness #justforfun #bikesarefun #morecowbell #galbraithmountain #washington #bellingham #wmbc #ratherbeoutside #biketography
DAY 48 - 29 miles/ 47km . This morning I woke up in the middle of a whole bunch of smelly hikers. There were five of us chatting the morning away, Bullfrog, Mainer, Jeep, Captain Blackbeard and myself (Freakout). I left this great bunch of thru hikers behind and started power hiking towards tonight's hostel and hot shower. . The first 20 miles/36 km we're verry easy, the terrain was nearly completely flat. Strange! It kind of got me confused, not being used to this anymore my knees actually hurted more than going up and down. Stranger still. I have some similar problems with being in a car... not used anymore to the speed of a driving vehicle my mind head starts pounding quickly. . After eating a late lunch, it was time for the infamous roller coasters. This is a short section of the #Appalachiantrail where steep mountains follow each other in quick procession. So up and down I went, while being blown left and right by stong winds and cold rain. Add some rough terrain and a lot of stones to the mix and it made for a very difficult afternoon! . Just before sunset I made it to #Bearsdenhostel . Where after happily paying the 30$ fee, I had a hot shower, complimentary pizza, ice-cream, apple pie, more pizza and a nice fluffy bed. Heaven.
Day 5: This was my favorite time riding in the back of a cop car. Today was brutal winds and rain, which was unexpected in the desert. Cozied up to the fire at a super hiker friendly bistro in Julian now. *the Sheriff asked me to mention that this was trail magic and please do not call the station asking for rides* . . . #P3Hikers #PacificCrestTrail #PCT1968 #PCTNOBO2018 #FindYourTrail #pctclassof2018 #guthook #hyperlite #superiorwildernessdesigns #patagonia #freefly #salomon #osprey #zpacks #setnfambassador #leavenotrace #thruhike #leavenotrace #womenwhohike #theTrek #TrekthePCT #MexicotoCanada @pctassociation @ospreypacks @salomon

#TBT 2016 This one of my favorite places to hike! The Chugach Mountains in Alaska are so beautiful. 😍 #ChugachMountains #EagleRiver , #Alaska
#TBT Perhaps the only recorded instance of performing at a belly dance fundraiser mid thru-hike on a zero day. In 2014, I organized the Arizona Trail Trek, a hike to promote the AZT, the guidebook that had just come out that I’d helped write, and the Gateway Communities. I set up 12 fundraisers benefitting the Arizona Trail Association, all with music, food and Arizona Trail Ale. I opened up my thru-hike for the public to sign up and join me on 7 dayhikes and five backpacking trips. For 2 1/2 months, I hiked, talked about the trail, took people on adventures, ate everything in sight and savored my solo time. My dad was my support crew through most of it and was an integral part of the trip. It fulfilled my dreams of thru-hiking and spreading the word about this trail I love so much. The truth is, I had this idea way back in 2007. I have a journal entry from a visit to Grand Canyon when I asked a ranger about the Arizona Trail and he couldn’t tell me anything about it. 7/27/07: “I could talk to people about the AZT and raise awareness. TV, news, little newspapers anyone who will listen! (Maybe even on hiking forums and other internet sources).” At the time, the trail wasn’t ready (it was 60 miles from being complete) and neither was I. I decided instead to use my 2008-09 hike of the AZT to raise awareness for fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition I’ve had since 1997. Seven years later, I made it happen, and as part of my job working for the Arizona Trail Association. The trail was now complete, I had seven years of experience under my belt and my work building the Gateway Community program and guiding meant I had the contacts and people skills to make a grand plan like this happen. In the end, I raised almost $18,000 for the Arizona Trail Association, took over 100 people on the trail with me, held 12 fundraisers, talked to thousands of people, did interviews with TV, newspapers and radio, and wrote blogs and social media posts to virtually take people along. It was exhilarating and exhausting and all I’d ever hoped. I made friends through that trek that are dear to me to this day. Have a big idea? What would it take to make it a reality?
A few days @hikingthecdt in New Mexico’s boot heel and @morgandzak can take a fast nap anywhere anytime, even if it’s right on the CDT.

Blazing big sky, endless views, rocky trail, nice and toasty temps...what more could a person want down in New Mexico’s bootheel @hikingthecdt Hmmmm. A glass of ice water perhaps..or an icy beer...or even a Dr. Pepper...none of that out here! #cdt #cdt2018 #findyourtrail #bravethecdt #notaroadwalk #newmexicotrue #landofenchantment #altrarunning #olympustg5 #waymarkgearco #heavydutyultralight

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls." ~John Muir~ #goldenhour

Survived day 1 on the PCT! We are in Lake Morena eating breakfast burritos. Woke up before the sun and started hiking at 5 am to beat the heat. We walked 5 miles before 8 am. Gonna push 10ish more miles today. Some general aches and pains but otherwise feelin’ good!

DAY 47 - 36 miles/58km . The weekend is here and it shows! The #ShenandoahNationalpark is even more crowded than yesterday, filled by residents of nabouring cities like Washington & NY. I'm enjoying the buzz and laughter filled trails. It is a nice change from the silent, serene woods I visit daily. . These weekend warriors keep asking questions about thru hiking and life on the #Appalachiantrail . I have to admit I felt outright proud when a young boy asked me what the #AT is all about and the father answers. "Son, this lad is walking 2100miles/3500km from Georgia to Maine and he is a adventurer". Silence followed. Me and my vanity... sigh... . On topic again, the trail runs over a dozen little hills, all a part of the #ShenandoahNationalpark . Going up 500feet/200m and the same down again. Around lunch time I arrive at a wayside restaurant. To my great surprice and joy, I see a hiker smiling right at me. It's my old buddy Bullfrog, who I've met a few weeks ago in what already seems a lifetime ago. . Together we hike about 20 miles/36km, until way after darkness. We talk about life on the trail, the challenges we have already gone through and what is still ahead off us. Sometime I forget how nice it is to hike together with a friend. We blow up our sleeping pads and crawl in between some other hikers already fast asleep in the shelter. . . . #mountains #hiking #usa #trekking #outdoor #georgia #adventure #hiking #backpacking #outdoorlife #greatoutdoors #naturelife #nobo #thruhiker #AT #atthruhike #at2018 #appalachiantrail #georgiatomaine #waaultra #waa #hikertrash #lifeofadventure #optoutside #picoftheday #findyourtrail #ultralightbackpacking #zpacks #thetrek #waa #waa -ultra

It's been a pretty awkward spring so far. Winter just doesn't want to release the trails. They seem too melty for fat bikes, but too soupy for mountain bikes. The ski hill still has amazing coverage and the roads are dry for road biking, though they badly need sweeping. So shoulder season, I run. It gets me out in my beloved trails, despite the ice and mud, it's good to be on them again. #traillove #trailrunning #mountainviews #mountains #getoutside #multisportday #audiobookskeepmegoing #audiobookseverywhere #mountains #skitownlife #lole #runselfie #sunrun #sunshineandsmiles #postskirun #apresski #stephenkingfan #myjasper #runinthesnow #springinalberta #shoulderseason #dakine #smile #optoutside #choosemountains #findyourtrail
