Our first video! 😁 Us armatures tried really hard at this 😂 Friendly tips would be muchly appreciated. This was all videoed at Sandy Creek in Litchfield. It was the quietest and most amazing place there 👌🏽 Probably our favourite swimming hole so far!
Team 21 - Day 4 - Wicked early in the morning. With just five miles to cover today, we jumped out of bed and made our way to Sunfish Pond to catch the sunrise. Then on to the AMC for a big breakfast before handing over the reins to Team 22.

Denali National Park & Preserve, which contains 6 million acres within Alaska’s interior wilderness, is absolutely beautiful - rain or shine. While venturing through the park we didn’t see any sign of bears, but we did have a chance to see many moose, hares, a red fox family near their den on the side of a hill and many braided rivers. Again, I feel so lucky to have been one of the many few who have had a chance to drive through the park on Denali Park Road - the only 92 mile road in the park, which is only accessible by the Murie Science & Learning Center bus. The buses help limit & restrict private vehicle access into the park after mile 15 and doing so helps control what impact we have on the wildlife & surrounding areas, and in turn helps promote science, preservation and stewardship of the park. Overall, the park has been so beautiful! 🏔🌲 #DenaliNationalPark #Denali #DenaliNPS #FindYourPark #RadParks #Alaska #TravelAlaska #AlaskaDaily #NatureAlaska #AlaskaNationalParks #DailyAlaska #ILoveAlaska #PicYourParkContest #IdHikeThatCrew #TheLastFrontier #AlaskanAdventures #ExploreAlaska
Zero Day: South Lake Tahoe!
South Lake Tahoe was good to us. We hitched into town within 45 minutes of getting off trail. Another hiker picked us up and dropped us off at Mcdonalds. McDonalds breakfast! 😋
We had an awesome time resupplying. Found everything we needed and then some. Even found my all-time favorite cheese at the store, Beechers Marco Polo!
After resupplying, we headed down the road to our home for the evening, Motel 6. We even ran into Uber Frog at the pool while we waited for our room. He had done trail magic for us a couple of days ago with burgers and hotdogs.
After showers and laundry, we headed towards the state line on Lime Bikes for pizza and a trip to the outfitters to stock up on a few supplies for the next section.
These Lime Bikes were a riot. For a $1 a ride, we jammed all around town. Don’t let Grit’s face fool you. He may look annoyed, but I know he had fun riding the bikes. It was way better than taking the bus!
The next day we headed back to the trail to start a new section: Northern California.
Thanks South Lake Tahoe for the good time!

Middle Fork of the Feather River. Very nice swimming spot. The water was very nice. I sat in some rapids for over an hour and a half. The water was so comfortable. It's been very hot hiking lately.
Letting the ladies do the work hitchhiking.
Everybody is on their phones at the Seiad Valley general store, using the same slow wifi to refresh the same limited information. There is only one question: can we make it to the Oregon border before the Hendrix Fire closes the trail. The forest service and the PCTA say there might be a closure soon, and to stay put. But for how long? Nobody knows.
What we do know is that the fire is burning less than a mile from the trail. There are southerly winds blowing the fire towards us and the trail. Some hikers are booking out to try and beat the closure. But I can't. A mile is as good as nothing to a forest fire, it's a distance that can be covered in minutes and there are so few options to bail should things go wrong.
Keith and I are the first to act, we're hitching to Ashland—it's not worth the risk even though it breaks my heart to not be able to walk into Oregon. But it's the smart choice so we hitch out and by the time we've arrived in Ashland the trail is officially closed. It feels so bland to enter Oregon in the back of a Nissan instead of walking across the border, especially after being so close. But what can you do?
We're officially out of California, in what may be the most anticlimactic ending to the first and biggest state on the PCT.
