"It's an odd feeling...finishing a long trail and knowing you have a few thousand miles to go...but it's a good place to be." - The Prodigy ♤#humansofthepct and #humansofthecdt ♤ • • • 2 trails have been completed...5 months ago I wouldn't and couldn't even fathom this. • • • I was injured, couldn't bear weight on either foot and seriously contemplating whether or not I'd even attempt a hike like this • • • Well as we get ready to board a plane for New England I can only take a deep breath and remember every journey begins with that single step • • • 5500 miles later we are leaving the desert for the Northeast and it's mountains and forests • • • I'm not sure if I'll be able to put into words what this means but that's for another time. • • • Alright Continental Divide Trail, and Pacific Crest Trail...it's been fun, Tough and oh so many memories we had together • • • Time for a scenery change and some new terrain • • • Many x's and o's • • • • • #HappyTrails • • • Video cred: @mymountainiswaiting at the finish of the #PCT on July 24th, 2018• • • #8000milesto8000smiles
"We are looking forward to getting to town and then we are all going to watch the new Avengers Movie, town needs you know?" ♢#Humansofthepct ♢ Little Bite, Sundance, Giving Tree, Strider • • • This was the second time in a span of 9 days we ran into this trail family. • • • We first encountered Little Bite, Sundance ad Stride at Little Jimmy Spring after descending from Baden-Powell. • • • It was fun chatting with them as they were all on their first big long distance hike on the PCT. They were all excited and enjoying the process. • • • Giving Tree, featured earlier in this profile was someone who we met at the Mill Creek Fire Station and was just all positive energy. • • • What a surprise to see them at the water cache before getting to Tehachapi Willow Springs Road. • • • So good to see them one more time, even though we never saw them on trail again we hoped they stayed together throughout the trail. • • • Little Bite and Sundance hail from the northeast, Giving Tree from Oregon and Strider from Southern California • • • Be sure to follow their travels at: Little Bite and Sundance: @sunnyrivervt Giving Tree: @thedirtlessdirtbag Strider: @petersebeckis • • • #Happytrails • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailangel #trailamily #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #pacificcresttrail2018 #wander #travel #adventure #explore #travels #journey #wanderlust #wanderer #adventures #backpackermag #outside #socal #trailmagic
"The study of asana is not about mastering posture.  It’s about using posture to understand and transform yourself.” - B.K.S Inyengar ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • This photo is not from Colorado, which is where we are now on the CDT. This was taken on Glen Pass by @mymountainiswaiting • • • This last stretch had some very steep climbs and descents and I've been dealing with some aches and pains...it doesn't get any easier as we hit the highest point on the CDT soon. • • • Breath has been something that has been neglected. Well, we are still breathing yes, but we have noticed a big difference with the way we breathe. • • • This trail is not forgiving, not the terrain, the weather or the environment. Overall we've been pretty lucky...but during this last stretch, the mountains showed us they can change everything in a blink of an eye. • • • In a flash we were stuck in a torrential down pour with zero cover. • • • Nature will do what it wants to do and we as humans can only make decisions when the time is right. The trail won't wait for us to finish it, if it decides to dump precipitation it will, if snow comes early it will, and if it says you're not hiking this way this year it will. • • • I'm happy my friend Pathfinder and I made the decision to turn back last night instead of pushing through. It was tough but knowing when to set your ego aside and to be safe is crucial in the mountains. • • • Luckily we got through the night and made it into town for the day where we can regroup for this next stretch. • • • With more rain and snow in the immediate forecast I'm keeping my eyes in front but all my senses alert to the ever changing situation • • • I've been forever changed with this trek thus far and each day I continue to feel the transformation • • • Staying humble and keeping it a step at a time • • • #humansofthecdt #yogapractice #8000milesto8000smiles #fitness #PCT #yogagram #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #yogaflow #yoga #warrior #socal #cdt2018 #sunsalutation #thegreatoutdoors #ctc2018 #CDT #practice #yogachallenge #calendaryeartriplecrown #triplecrown #continentaldividetrail #cytc365

"Quick Strip...it's what people call me...it's in the name (wink wink)."- Quick Strip aka Magical Stripper ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Right after the Aqueduct walk we ran into Quick Strip and Bandy Legs from #Connecticut • • • Obviously we had to ask about Quick strip's name and origin • • • Let's just say if he needs to change, or lose layers...he's an expert • • • Turns out another hiker saw it happen and was so surprised that they deemed him Quick Strip on the spot. • • • Bandy Legs though mentioned he should be called Magical Stripper • • • We won't choose, but what are your thoughts? • • • Wishing them #HappyTrails on their pct journey and maybe seeing them out East on our AT 2018 hike to finish calendar year Triple crown• • • Follow their hike @nick_broth & @aknah5 • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailcrew #pctstory #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #trailfamily #backpackermag #outside #desert #trailmagic #thruhike #longdistancehiking #travel #wander #adventure #explore #adventures #journey
"We've been doing this a long time, it's hard to give up." - Terrie ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • For anyone who has hiked the #PCT , plans on hiking or knows anything about the trail should have stopped or should stop at Casa De Luna in So Cal. • • • Terri and Joe are the gracious hosts, amazing trail angels and just great people • • • We first met Terrie and Joe in 2016 on our first thru hike and made sure we stopped by on our first leg of the Calendar Year Triple Crown. • • • We got even luckier this year as Terri was shuttling hikers back and forth from the highway to the Casa. • • • You all know the set up, couches, shade, giant sign in sheet (literally a giant sheet), rock painting station, a maze of camp sites, taco salads and the PCT famous pancakes • • • They have been doing this a long time and they may continue doing for many more years. But for anyone whose stayed and experienced this wonderful place we hope you took it all in • • • One day it may be time for them to pass the torch to someone else, will it be you? • • • A big thank you to Terrie and Joe for everything they've done and continue to do for the long distance hiking community • • • Be sure to follow them @casadelunaterrie & @casadelunajoe • • • #HappyTrails • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailangel #casadeluna #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #backpackermag #outside #desert #trailmagic

Awesome pic! 😀 "Oops, I think i did it again...I played with your heart, got lost in the game, oh baby baby..." - Britney Spears ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • So on July 24th, 2018 we came upon the brand new & recently installed northern Terminus of the PCT. • • 2 years ago, roughly, we were surprised by the Terminus & how quickly it came upon us as we descended the last switchbacks on the #PCT . • • We could say the same thing happened again. Except this time we knew this was just a part of a bigger journey. • • Yet at the same time, seeing the new monument, I had to admire it & be humbled by the fact I was sitting there again. • • To be able to hike the PCT is a life long dream for many people. It was for me the first time. To do it again, well, it's special. • • From the deserts in Southern California, to the High Sierra passes, into the rolling hills & mountains in Northern California we hiked. • • From the first views of Mt. Shasta to the 300th view of Mt Shasta, we hiked. • • On through the forests of Southern Oregon, into clouds of mosquitoes & into the volcanic fields of Northern Oregon we hiked. • • Crossing the Bridge of Gods, into more clouds of mosquitoes, we hiked. • • As the Northern Cascades began, flowing seasonal streams became creeks & Glacier Peak showed itself, we hiked. • • The last few miles of trail became another moment in time where we thought about all the miles before & all the steps that brought us there. • • Then there it was, the new & shining monument. Everyone who will end up there will have various emotions, feelings & reactions. • • All I could really do was to smile... & then of course give the monument a kiss 😘😚😍 • • It has been an honor to be able to hike this trail all the way through again. It's a trail that has my ❤ & even though we are headed to the #CDT , I'll always be a part of #PCTclassof2018 • • Thank you #PCTA , thank you family, thank you friends, thank you trail angels, thank you hikers & thank you #pct2018 • #HappyTrails • • - The Prodigy • #thrupack #wander #wanderlust #explore #8000milesto8000smiles #adventure #travel #nomad #vagabond #trailrunning #ultralight #diversity #nature #pnw #wash

"You want to talk about some worse or uncomfortable trail moments...I had a Cactus thorn in my leg for 170 miles while hiking...yeah...not the funnest thing to write home about." - Giving Tree ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • While passing Mill Creek Fire Station we ran into Giving Tree from Ashland, Oregon. • • • We were chatting about the desert and another hiker had brought up their aches and pains and wondered if they could get through it • • • He wasn't boasting, but Giving Tree mentioned you could push through almost anything, it was up to you though. He mentioned how the Cactus thorn had gotten embedded and how it sucked but he got through it before getting help to remove it. • • • As far as all the folks we met this year on the PCT, Giving Tree was one of those hikers who had such positive energy and seemed to really be enjoying himself out there • • • Here's to him having a safe and fun rest of the hike • • • Be sure to follow his hike and adventure @thedirtlessdirtbag • • • #HappyTrails • • •  #keepitwild #keepitpublic #ProtectPublicLands #leavenotrace #photography #hyperlite #altrarunning #zpacks #oregon #smile #hikingram   #beards #hike #hiking #backpacking #backpackers #trekking #backpackermag #inspire #hikeon #dirtbag #wanderer #mexicotocanada #cdt2018 #AT2018 #trailcrew #vagabond #nomad
The second night we camped with SOBOs was far more enjoyable than the first. I forget this dudes trail name but he hiked the PCT last year and missed a bunch because of fires, so he's doing another thru attempt. #sobo #pct #pct2018 #hikertrash #humansofthepct

"Welcome to PCT Cribs with your main trail blazer The Prodigy. Let's take a look inside the new crib at BLYC..." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • I'm Anaconda now and we need a break before this next stretch where we won't be staying in town at all until quite a ways. • • • Throwback Tuesday to that time we were on the PCT last month and enjoying the new PCT Welcome Center at BLYC • • • Ask any long distance hiker and you'll know any chance they get to enjoy some R & R it is worth it. • • • If that rest comes in a beautiful spot with great amenities it's a plus. • • • Being on the CDT we won't be seeing many spots like this, which is okay. Every trail is different and not everyone goes at all the trail towns or stops • • • It is a good reminder that we all hike our own hike, we all have different experiences out here and that there are good folks that go out of their way to help hikers. • • • Remember to give back, ask to help where ever you can and pay it forward • • • Thank you @biglakeyouthcamp for your hospitality and trail love! • • • #HappyTrails • • • @palantepacks @roscoeoutdoor @mymountainiswaiting @dutchbroscoffee @pctassociation #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #biglakeyouthcamp #oregon #calendaryeartriplecrown #cytc365 #calendartriplecrown #rei #longdistancehiking #pnw #pacificnorthwest #adventure #explore #adventures #travel #triplecrown #wanderlust #wander #cribs #dutchbros
#Repost @hikingprodigy • • • • • "You know how she got her name, she tore a ligament last year and kept walking until we got to the next town...that's why she's a tough cookie." - Navy Bean ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Hiking toward Mill Creek Fire Station we leap frogged with a couple who had just lost a piece to their trekking pole. • • • Turns out this couple, Tough Cookie and Navy Bean were also a part of pctclassof2016. • • • They were back to do it all the way through this time as they had to stop in the Northern Sierras last time due to some injuries. • • • We also learned that after the trail they were going abroad to house sit in a villa for a few months and then would continue traveling and house sitting. • • • This time they'd sold their house, all their belongings and are all in on the trail and then traveling the rest of their lives. • • • As for their trekking pole they had to rig up a temporary solution before getting to Agua Dulce. • • • Hope they are enjoying their time on trail before their next adventure, definitely have us thinking of house sitting abroad too! • • • #HappyTrails • • • #PCT2018 #PCT #pacificcresttrail #pctstory #pctclassof2018 #pctig #trekthepct #pcta #california #thrupack #roscoeoutdoor #coalatree #camping #backpacker #adventures #mexicotocanada #wander #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #escape #travels #yolo #smile #8000milesto8000smiles

EXCUSE ME, I JUST WALKED HALFWAY FROM MEXICO TO CANADA. It took me 82 days to walk from the border to here, but this next half is going to fly by. I’m currently drinking a beer on the side of a highway trying to get a hitch into town, life is brilliant, my face is really dirty, I don’t care, whatever, this is the best.

Cool photography! 😛 "Oops, I think i did it again...I played with your heart, got lost in the game, oh baby baby..." - Britney Spears ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • So on July 24th, 2018 we came upon the brand new & recently installed northern Terminus of the PCT. • • 2 years ago, roughly, we were surprised by the Terminus & how quickly it came upon us as we descended the last switchbacks on the #PCT . • • We could say the same thing happened again.

Indy, who said he used to look like Indiana Jones, before he grew his beard. He has literally been a half day ahead of me for the entire trail and it took me over 2000 miles to meet him. We shared some beer before I headed off. #PCT #pct2018 #hikertrash #humansofthepct
This is Midlayer. I just met him and apparent we have been hiking about a day apart since the desert. He just rolled into Cascade Locks and is primed and ready to crush Washington.#pct #pct2018 #hikertrash #sonyalpha #sonya7ii #humansofthepct

And before you ask, he does not know @jupiterhikes , he gets that a lot and is usually what people ask him. • • • And no he has no interest in being named another planet...though we haven't seen him in a month and a half. • • • James mentioned he's enjoyed the desert and knows it's not flat...which for some reason people still think every year. • • • Also, he mentioned there's a great beach in Jupiter and if we go there after our AT hike we'd be free to stay on his couch...we definitely might take him up on that • • • Follow his journey @jamesrozea • • • #HappyTrails • • • #palantepacks #zpacks #roscoeoutdoor #backpackermag #backpacking #trekking #wanderer #traveling #longdistancehiking #rei #jupiter #love #life #laugh #footpower #bliss #smile #backpackers #deserthiking #cdt2018 #ProtectPublicLands #keepitpublic #keepitwild #publiclands #nationalforests #at2018 #clevelandnationalforests #scissorscrossing Via :@hikingprodigy Follow me : @Hiking_lover_Martinez

Cool photography! 😛 "Two years ago we took the same photo...love this place...wish we didn't have to eat and run." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • A few days ago we left Cascade Locks with full bellies and after some wonderful time spent in this great trail town. • • • We got to catch up with @julesinthegorge and even got to try the hiker trash burgers! • • • Unfortunately we had to leave the next morning and start into Washington as our end date on the PCT is not as flexible as others...we have to get to the CDT fairly quickly afterwards. • • • Oregon came and went...the mosquitoes were the one constant. We averaged over 40 miles a day through the state, boy was it tiring with the hungry insects • • • Though... I'm sitting at Whites Pass and there are probably a few hundred outside right now so it hasn't changed much. • • • Much love to the great folks in Oregon who help hikers out and are a part of that family every year. • • • As we continue north it's with the knowledge that there are good people out there and the trail provides even in the darkest of times. • • • Thanks for following along, I promise to update hiker profiles for humansofthepct soon. • • • Until then stay hiking and HappyTrails • • • #PCT2018 #PCT #pacificcresttrail #pctstory #pctclassof2018 #pctig #trekthepct #pcta #asianamerican #thrupack #roscoeoutdoor #coalatree #explorer #backpacker #adventures #HongKong #mexicotocanada #wander #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #escape #travels #yolo #smile #love #8000milesto8000smiles #oregon Via :@hikingprodigy Follow me : @Hiking_lover_Torres

Great pic 😮 "It might be a little early but like they say, the early hiker gets the berry." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Sitting and standing here at Cascade Locks, holy moly. • • • We just did some major mileage in Oregon on the PCT as we continue forward on the Calendar Year Triple Crown Hike this year • ○ ○ Someone made a post recently about appreciating the little things. We've been going so many miles now I've seen a lot even though we hike early to Late • • • A friend (@trail_snacks ) on trail asked about berries on trail. I told him they'd be late this year. Well that was a bit of an early statement too...well sort of • • • The next morning on the climb up to Timberline I noticed some darker colors on the huckleberry plants...then a few more. Well these were the first two I picked for the season. • • • It wasn't a big patch but they were there. I still stand by the fact that the berries will start to come in later in the summer and August will be bursting with flavor. • • • To pct2018 folks I won't day where this patch is but keep your eyes out between the Warm River and Timothy Lake in Oregon 😉 • • • Oh and please stop by the Cascade Locks Ale House, Jules (@julesinthegorge ) & Co are such awesome humans and you have to try the hiker trash burger, tell them the Prodigy sent you! • • • Tomorrow we enter Washington, whoa, still can't believe it but will update the post before heading on the climb. • • •. #HappyTrails • • • #keepitwild #keepitpublic #ProtectPublicLands #leavenotrace #photography #palantepacks #altrarunning #roscoeoutdoor #zpacks #outdoorasian #brownpeoplehiking #smile #hikingram   #brownpeoplecamping #hike #hiking #backpacking #backpackers #trekking #backpackermag #inspire #wanderer #injinji #mexicotocanada #ctc2018 #AT2018 #trailcrew #love Via :@hikingprodigy Follow me : @Hiking_lover_Lee
