Updating my website to include info about my upcoming #ColoradoTrail thru-hike, and I came across this gem from the #pacificcresttrail . This photo was in the beautiful Marble Mountain Wilderness where we decided to do our biggest day (35 miles) with 8,000+ ft of gain. - #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #pct2017 #marblemountainwilderness #northerncalifornia #adventure #mountains #backpacking #backpackermag #choosemountains #seemerlag #mountainsaremymuse
"You know we were wondering if we'd ever run into you or if you'd just be hundreds of miles ahead. It's sweet to be back on a section we worked on last year and make some progress." - Kat ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • On our way up to Wrightwood we thought we noticed some brand new tread work as the soil looked fresh for a tread surface. • • • Well as few minutes later we heard some voices and some unmistakable sounds of tread tools hitting the trail • • • Of course the ACE crew lead was none other than Kat, who was on our crew last year as an Assistant Crew Leader for ACE. • • • She is leading one of the two ACE PCT crews, working alongside new PCTA TA Eleanor whom we got to meet that day as well • • • Also the crew they had was pretty new to the work so we made sure to tell them to learn as much as possible during the season because every soil type on trail is different and each project has it's own difficulties that they'll encounter. • • • It's good to see new folks out there, wanting to help protect and preserve the PCT and also our public lands. We've been in the natural resource management field for a while so it's good to see new faces and passion out there in the next generation of leaders• • • It's also great to see strong female leaders on trail crews and getting out there and taking names • • • Wishing this crew the best as they continue their long season helping to maintain the trail and to finish the construction of the Sierra Buttes Realignment Project. • • • Follow their trail season For Eleanor @ejandersonart , Kat @native_kitkat , Ivy @gourmettwinkie , Dustin @dustin_roeder , Parker @playoutside92 , Brady @bradybrissell • • • #HappyTrails • • • #ctc2018 #nationalforests #pcta #calendaryeartriplecrown #triplecrown #trekthepct #pctstory #continentaldivide #desert #desert #mountains #socal #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors #travel #wander #wanderlust #adventure #adventures #explore #escape #yolo #loseyourself #getlost #wilderness #nature #americorps
Another pretty cool campsite here in the Peruvian Andes. This one at 5000m or 16500 feet. I've had a pretty bad cold for a while and have been stuck at home in Huaraz, but starting to feel better now and getting stoked about getting back out there.- - - - - #optoutside #getoutside #goatworthy #wildernessnation #rei1440project #explore #exploremore #backpacking #hiking #backpackermag #fujix #fujifilm #climbing #mountaineering #visitperu #exploreperu #climber #grippedmagazine #beanoutsider #llbeancontest18

I could watch fire flicker all day! This is in Tibet’s holiest temple, the Jokhang Temple in Tibet, with one of the oldest statues of Buddha in known history. @itibettravel @lonelyplanet
I really like the contrast of the uphill tracks vs the downhill. Fighting the snow with your crampons on the way up vs gliding through the snow with your skis on the way down. - - - - - #optoutside #getoutside #goatworthy #wildernessnation #rei1440project #explore #exploremore #backpacking #hiking #backpackermag #fujix #fujifilm #climbing #mountaineering #visitperu #exploreperu #climber #grippedmagazine #beanoutsider #llbeancontest18
"I wasn't sure where to camp but figure I'd be safe and stay behind the thick brush." - Snow White ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • As we left Silverwood Lake early morning with ran into Snow White from Dallas as she came out from the forest • • • We talked about how it's hard to find a camp spot in that area the closer you get toward the state Highway • • • She mentioned her trail name came about as she was applying sun screen one day she put a little too much on her face. Another hiker came by and said she looked like Snow White. • • • She's going with it but also is aware it's up to her if she wants to change it at any point. • • • It brings up the topic of trail names...if you don't like it you don't have to accept it. If you don't want one then you don't need to have one. Don't let others make you uncomfortable on trail if they try to name you something you aren't comfortable with • • Be thoughtful, be open minded but also be aware not all hikers need or want a trail name • • • With that being said, #HappyTrails Snow White and to all the hikers out there • • • #pcta #pctig #PCT #pctstory #thetrek #trekthepct #optoutside #inspire #hikeon #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #choosemountains #socal #desert #thruhike #hikingram #hikingculture #dallas #wander #adventure #travel #wanderlust #travel #escape #nature #getoutside #mountains

A Tibetan nomad lady walks the Mount Kailash kora. This was taken about 1 hour before the high Dolma La Pass at 18,500 feet.
Backpacking the Olympic Coast was all that I dreamed of and more. Endless ocean, rugged beach, and dense forest.... all of my favorites packed into one hike. Absolute bliss for this Arizona desert native. #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwlife #moodygrams #mtnchicks #pnwcollective #olympicnationalpark #olympicpeninsula #optoutside #backcountry #backpackermag #backpackerlife #outsidemagazine #natgeotravel #pnwmoods #thegreatpnw #theoutbound #nationalparkgeek #goatworthy #pnwexplored #pnwexplorations #pnwexploring
I wonder what kind of stories these guys have...
While planning the Switchback Showcase, we had nightmares of no one showing up to see the premiere of our High Sierra Trail film. 2 weeks before the event, it sold out, and the film is continuing to gain interest. Thanks so much to everyone for supporting this project! Stay tuned for more screenings. #highsierratrailfilm #switchbackshowcase2018 . . . . . . . #switchbackshowcase #chrisisawesomeproductions #outdoorfilm #hike #backpacker #backpacking #highsierratraildocumentary #highsierratrail #filmfestival #wanderlust #wildernessculture #wilderness #exploremore #bpmag #backpackerseries #backpackermag
Watched this guy for about 30 min. Climbing trees, destroying them, looking for termites. Such an amazing experience!

"Some people spend their lives thinking what could have been...maybe this is me saying I'd rather find out now, but who knows?" - The Prodigy ♤#humansofthecdt ♤ • • • We made it to Cabazon, it's only Day 6 from the border of the #PCT . • • • I've eaten more bars than I'd like to admit but it's all fuel in the end. • • • This photo however is from the CDT. During that first stretch we met many folks doing their first thru hike on the CDT, much respect, it's not easy. • • • The desert on the PCT and the desert on the CDT are very different... the dirt is so different • • • Being back on the PCT has been healing, rejuvenating and has brought many a smile to this face. • • • Running into old friends and new has been a joy. This has reminded me to enjoy the process, to live in the moment, pursue what is important and block out the noise • • • I'm skipping this next section to jump up (I already hiked this section before getting on the CDT...and then coming back again) to Baden Powell making it to Agua Dulce this weekend. Keep an eye out for @mymountainiswaiting as they continue toward Hiker Heaven where we'll get the team back together • • • Cheers to foot power, snack breaks and spring fed water...also sodas and chips when they are available ;) • • • #ctc2018 #CDT #cdt2018 #calendaryeartriplecrown #triplecrown #continentaldividetrail #CDTC #continentaldivide #desert #newmexico #mountains #nature #getoutside #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #travel #wander #wanderlust #adventure #adventures #explore #escape #yolo #loseyourself #getlost #wilderness #humansofthepct

#لرستان_را_باید_دید قرار گرفتن در دل طبیعت و فراموش کردن مشکلات زندگی عادی یکی از جذابیت های طبیعتگردی است. زیبایی و سکوتی که طبیعت به انسان هدیه می کند باعث آرامش روحی و برطرف شدن تنش های روزمره از ذهن می شود. #محمدرضا ____________________________ #tripadvisor #backpacking #trip #traveler #سفر #tripiran #natgeo #travelslifee #natgeotravel #amazingtravelers #planetearth #experience #takemebackpacking #getbackpacking #backpackermag #irantravel #traveltolt #travel #travelchannel #dreaming_travel #irantourist #traveler_from_iran #آبشار_بیشه #آبشار_گریت
Night from the River Trail in the Grand Canyon. The trail connects the Bright Angel and South Kaibab trails and provides a cool perspective of the Bright Angel campground and Phantom Ranch from across the Colorado river. Great hike for a full moon!
Big Buddha Temple has been my favorite experience thus far. Perched atop a mountain overlooking the ocean, you ride a scooter all the way to the top through the jungle. We arrived as the monks were doing their evening chanting, which is played over speaker phone and radiates across the whole valley. Simply put, this place is absolute peace. The energy is calming and introspective. The temple garden is home to the actual footprints, handprint, and seat print of Buddha in one of his many incarnations. It is said to show his immense connection with nature. The trees are adorned with gold leaf hearts that visitors write their hopes and intentions on. 🍂 Abstention of all evil, Cultivation of the wholesome, Purification of the heart, This is the message of the Buddha. 🙏🏼 #HealYourselfWithNature
This is the place I feel most connected, in control and powerful. With the trail beneath my boots, the sun on my back, and my eyes on the horizon I am completely content. I keep chasing this feeling and it always leads me back here to this amazing park year after year. #yellowstoneforever . . . . #yellowstone #hikingculture #outdoorculture #letscamp #beautifuldestinations #neverstopexploring #keepitwild #thegreatoutdoors #exploretocreate #montanamoment #adventure #livefolk #liveauthentic #optoutside #stayandwander #theoutbound #travelstoke #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #allaboutadventures #naturetones #backpackermag

Yellow Curry 🍛 With potato, onion, cabbage carrot, and fresh curry leaves. The food here is just incredible. I’m living on fried rice, curry, and yellow noodles. Everything, even street food, is freshly made. Sampling the best Pad Thai and Curry all over Thailand 😋 oh and not to mention the coconut ice cream! 🥥🌴 I am loving exploring Koh Phi Phi. It’s absolutely beautiful, has incredible food, and the people are friendly and helpful. Plus kittens on the beach. I mean, what else could you even ask for? #HealYourselfWithNature

Na primeira noite ventou muito!! E o vento da Patagonia é de dar medo, a sensação era de que levantaria a barraca comigo dentro. . Na segunda noite chuveu e alagou a barraca toda!! Uma regra que se você curte acampar deve levar com muito rigor é: sempre mantenha seu saco de dormir seco!! Se vira.. mas nao deixa ele molhar pq é ele que vai te salvar. Abandonei a barraca com camera e tudo e fui dormir no banheiro. . Essa foto é a terceira noite, dormir ao som do rio passando é fantástico!! . .

"I hiked the AT last year. Well now I'm out here so you gotta love it to do it." - Nugget ♤#humansofthecdt ♤ • • • Note, we'll be switching between humansofthepct and humansofthecdt the next couple weeks as we catch up on posts. • • • Now that we are on the PCT we have a little more access to phone reception so our goal is to catch up asap. Thanks for the patience and support • • • Day one on the CDT had us encountering Nugget water cache one on trail. • • • Hailing from Florida, he enjoyed his hike last year so much he figured why not do another one. • • • It's a very different trail he mentioned, especially the water access on trail. • • • He's glad there are water caches, as we all are. Thank you CDTC. • • • Wishing him HappyTrails on his CDT hike and hope to see him again on our SOBO finish to the CDT • • • Be sure to follow his adventure @ndefran799 • • • #ctc2018 #CDT #cdt2018 #calendaryeartriplecrown #triplecrown #continentaldividetrail #CDTC #continentaldivide #desert #newmexico #mountains #nature #getoutside #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #travel #wander #wanderlust #adventure #adventures #explore #escape #yolo #loseyourself #getlost #wilderness
We planned on going out and back, but 12 miles of walking through sand and water will make a man opt for hitchhiking back to town. • This was my first time hitch hiking. It’s slightly humbling when you reach the point of holding up your thumb (which is odd by the way) and awkwardly make eye contact with the people in the cars that pass you by. Thankfully It only took us two tries. The first was an Asian family that slowed down like they were going to help us out only to roll right on by as their kids confusingly stared us down. The second was an old Subaru with a young, brown haired girl. The inside of her car was filled with fishing poles and decorated with a Hindu streamer (what an interesting combo). After we realized we were headed in the same direction she took a chance and drove us back to town. Turns out she left her lawyer life for a life full of experiences. She was currently working as a waitress in the small town of Boulder, UT saving up money for her next adventures. The stories of people amaze me! • Anyone else have any hitch hiking stories?? #hitchhikers

Last night we were able to have a Navajo guide take us to within 100ft walking distence of the Horseshoe Bend on their land. Even though it was a cloudy overcast evening with no real sunset I was still able to get a few good shots. Captured this shot using the Sony A7M3 with the Sony FE 16-35mm F/4 ZA lens. Camera was mounted on a tripod and I was close to the edge of the cliff. #horseshoebend #backpackermag #backpackermagazine #landscape #rock #cliff #sky #travelphotography @holler_back @debsandidge @gardendreamsstudio @kepkake @marthapetty @faziodominic
