James' Reimagined 55L Mo with extra wide base, huge and cavernous side pockets and a full array of shoulder, hip and base pockets. James originally ordered way back in April but I managed to completely miss his specification so offered to build him another, making him possibly the most patient Atom Packs customer to date. . This build in LS21 with carbon hoop and sewn in foam sheet, ls07 hip pocket and red highlights throughout. 940g . Things are becoming more efficient here at Atom Packs HQ. The lead time on Atoms should drop down to three weeks again soon as Laura comes to work full time. Exciting! . . #madeinengland #backpack #handmade #ultralight #ultralightbackpack #custombuilt #bespoke #hiking #outdoors #outside #thruhiking #pacificcresttrail #appalachiantrail #continentaldividetrail #teararoa #lakedistrict #keswick #cumbria #hikertrash #england #myog #atompacks #climberlicious #rock #climbing
4 more days until I'm back here
Planning to make this trip when I'm out. Feeling I've lost the person I was and I'm dedicating it to the people I could have helped but failed them instead. #pct #pacificcresttrail #2013july16
Two months ago almost to the day, Cowbell, Rainman and I sat on a boulder at mile 806 for about 4 hours deciding whether or not we wanted to cross the majority of the Sierra in the very wintry and somewhat unstable conditions. In the end we decided not to and flipped up to Oregon instead. . As you can see in the first picture, we are back on the same rock at mile 806! . The first time we passed through, the only footsteps in the snow were our own. It's funny to see how close we were to the trail sometimes. Today we found out what the terrain that we blundered over then is actually like without the snow. Always nice to see the 10 ft drop between the rocks that back then was just an even snow field. . So, did we make the right call to turn around?...would it have been a greater accomplishment to have pushed through? Sometimes I do catch myself thinking about the what if. But actually, I had a great time.... so really, it doesn't matter. . Have a great day everybody, wherever you are :) . #pct #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #noregrets #unfiltered
New kicks! Third pair on the PCT. My shoes are averaging approx. 700 miles each. My second pair of Altra Superior 3.0s took a major beating through the Sierras (hence the big ol’ rip!) and I wore the soles down so thin, my feet started aching regularly. Trying out these Altra Timps— thicker soles. Super stoked about em. Skid also got some new shoes (his fourth pair!)— his first pair of Hokas. Huge thanks to @bambalamm for my new shoes! You’re so amazing for being so generous and giving me so much love and support this entire adventure. 😘💕 #pct #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #altratimp #altrarunning #altra #shoes #girlgonewilderness #thegirlgonewilderness
I forgot to post a pic or video of where I slept last night because I'm a goof. Enjoy.

-DAY 65 JULY 15 SUN- 1010 Tentsite to Sonora pass 6miles(キロ) . 9:00am to 13:00pm . ずっと楽しみにしていたTed houseへ。 . ジャパニーズトレイルエンジェルとして有名なTedの家に2日間ステイさせて頂くことになった。 . Tedと奥さんのミホコさんは数年前にたまたま知り合ったJapanese PCTハイカーとの出逢いをきっかけに日本人オンリーでトレイルエンジェルをしてくださっている。 . Tedはもうリタイアしていて奥さんはドクターとして病院で働かれている。 . お住まいは何とも大きなお家で、さらには庭に大きなプール。そして1番は眼前に広がる大きな湖。 , まさにドリームハウスというのはこれのことなんだろう!!!と興奮しっぱなしだった。 . トレイルエンジェルというのはハイカーにとってはとてもありがたい存在で、基本フリーで食事に寝床に洗濯にと生活に必要不可欠なものを全て与えてくれる。 . PCTのハイキングの前に宿泊させて頂いたスカウト&フロドも同じくトレイルエンジェルだ。 . このような人達のおかげでPCTのハイキングを楽しめているということを忘れてはいけないなと思う。お金に余裕ができたらぜひとも寄付していきたい。 . しかしTed家で感じたアットホーム感は本当に家族のように温かい時間だった。 . 僕自身が少々馴れ馴れしさもあるのかも知れないが、以前からの知り合いのような気持ちで過ごした。Tedからも同じようなことを言われ少々ビックリした。😳☝️笑 . 短い足であったが、別れ際は寂しさもこみ上げるほどとても良い時間を過ごさせて頂いた。 . 来年は家のメンテナンスで忙しくなるらしく、トレイルエンジェルはできそうにないらしい。 . トレイルヘッドまで送ってもらい別れ際に . 「来年は手伝いに戻ってくるから!」 . と大きく手を振りバイバイした。 . ニッコリと大きく手を振り返してくれた。 . #tarasboulba #タラスブルバ #evernew #evernewjapan #pct2018 #pctclassof2018 #pacificcresttrail #pcthiker #trailsangel #pcta #mountainlife #mountaincalling #mountainliving #wilderness #山旅好き #johnmuir #jmt #backpacking #hiking #nationalpark #backpacking #アウトドア #バックパッカー #ロングトレイル #バックパッキング #登山 #ハイキング #テント泊 #hyakkeime #やまポトレ

First mile marker since mile 300 thats without @charlottebegouen (high noon) taking the picture and it feels totally weird. Thanks for making the trail days go by fast but not too fast and for keeping me sane but not too sane. I’ll see you in a year on the Camino. Have fun saving the ocean, doing awesome research and stuff 👩🏽‍🔬 #blessed #trailwife #mile1100 #pctclassof2018 #california #sierranevadas #pct #pctig #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail
Day 12 - Skykomish to a non-lake tentsite. 24 miles. Lingered in Skykomish before getting a quick hitch back on trail. Got into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness which is appropriately named. So many pretty lakes. But so many not pretty bugs. Decided not to camp at any of the lakes because of them. But passed the 200 mile mark! Day 13 - non-lake tentsite to mountainside tentsite. 20 miles. More meandering through open meadows and Alpine lakes and mountains. Camped at the base of a beautiful snow capped mountain with covered in fog and clouds, nbd. Day 14 - mountainside tentsite to Snoqualmie. 27 miles. Another beautiful day of hiking. Great weather and pretty sights. Even the bugs weren't that bad. Got to hike on talus for a long while which made me nostalgic for the Sierra. Didn't intend to hike so much today far but the last 7 miles were all downhill and the prospect of vegan curry was too much. Resupply tomorrow then another long stretch before the next pass. Group I was hiking with got split up at Skykomish so I'm a solo sobo for a while wah. Thankfully there's enough sights to keep me company.
Happy birthday to my dad and adventure partner! Thank you for always being there for me and teaching me my love and appreciation for the outdoors! - - This photo was taken on a camping trip last year while we were hiking up a mountain. We had come across a sign on our trail that intersected with the PCT. Had to crop the sign out because I can’t give away the name of the secret lake we hiked to ⛰

Trucking right along through Northern California. This section ever since Truckee has been a little weird for me. I’ve found it difficult to get into a hiking groove at times with so many trail angels/ trail towns/ random side trips like the one pictured here. At the same time, I’ve also been enjoying hiking solo and not answering to anyone other than myself all day. However, I’ve been listening to lots more podcasts/ music/ audiobooks to pass the time. So the trail has seemed kind of time-warpy for the past 2 weeks. I’m also concerned about the fire closures ahead in Oregon. So many things going through my head right now, but just trying to push through my kind of watered-down version of the “NorCal Blues”. That’s thru-hiking for ya. . . . . . . #pct #pct2018 #pcta #pctig #pacificcresttrail #mexicotocanada #trekthepct #thetrek #hikethepct #thruhiker #thruhike #thruhiking #hikertrash #thruhikesyndicate #guthookguides #backpacking #trailchat #optoutside #rei1440project #choosemountains #ourwild #getoutstayout #goatworthy #hikingtrails #sheexplores #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #mtnchicks #zpacks #enlightenedequipment @pacific.crest.trail @pctassociation @trails50 @nationaltrailssystem @pacificcrest.trail

This week I told my job my intent to take a leave of absence next spring and that I was going to hike from Mexico to Canada. PCT 2019, I’m coming for you ✌🏼
I almost feel bad for hiking Forester Pass without any snow, but then again, it's such a privilege to see it like this. Huge splashes of green, grey, and blue.

K- PCT Day 85 complete! Mother Nature really put on a show today! The day started in a haze which has drifted north from the Yosemite fire, casting an awesome orange glow on everything. I assume it also contributed to an amazing sunset that just got better and better as I hiked. Oh and I passed Anderson Peak - obviously named for me. 28.6mi (48.0km).

PCT Day 54: Selden pass, one of the last passes in the Sierra. Memorable for two reasons: endless attacks by bloodthirsty mosquitoes and clouds! Finally some beautiful fluffy white clouds in the sky. Never knew I would miss clouds this much. #whiteclouds #cloudstagram #mosquitos

finally friday! where are you exploring this weekend?! ☀️🏃🏼‍♀️⛰ . . do you know the cool history behind the vasquez rocks? yes, they are super amazing rock formations that formed 25 million years ago due to rapid erosion. but this 932 acre natural area park was also once the hiding place of tiburcio vasquez - one of california’s most infamous bandits (and perhaps the inspiration behind the legendary zoro) vasquez would use the rocks to elude capture by law enforcement police 🚔 🚨😎 . . #hikeology #amateuradventurer #hike #hiking #hikelife #hiker #vasquezrocks #vasquezrockspark #palmdale #santaclarita #idhikethat #exploringcalifornia #exploremore #optoutside #findyourselfoutside #gooutside #getoutdoors #onthetrail #happyfriday #hikelosangeles #explore #pct #pacificcresttrail #adventure #sonyalpha #sonyalpha7ii

7/19/18 - Thursday Day 99 — 35.2 Miles - Warner Valley Campground, Lassen National Park to Lost Creek Junction Miles from Mexico: 1385.5 Miles to Canada: 1264.5 Today on my lunch break, I was laying on a huge slab of pourous volcanic rock— a remnant from the last eruption of Mt. Lassen so many years ago. The rock was warm from the mid-July sun and it’s smooth curves perfectly fit the curves of my own body like memory foam. My feet dangled over the edge of the big rock— floating just below the surface of Hat Creek’s cool, crystalline waters. I could feel bursts of water below moving in waves and stirring up tiny bubbles as if the water were being sporadically pumped— smooth stones in browns and grays and greens stacked up over time into a small rapid. The warm sunshine caressed my face and skin, which were still damp from dipping in the creek, and the green tops of trees danced slowly under the cloudless, cerulean sky, swaying side to side to the rhythm of the gentle summer breeze. I closed my eyes, cozy in my blanket of sun, taking in the powerful sound and the damp, familiar smell of the water. “This is the best summer ever,” I thought to myself. A smile pulled at my closed lips as a deeply satisfying feeling of calm moved through my bones and soul. “This is the best summer ever...” Photo credit to: @florianjacotdescombes #pct #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #hikertrash #girlgonewilderness #thegirlgonewilderness

I just can't describe you how much I've been falling in love with the mountains, and the influence they're starting to have on me . Some beautiful green when you drop low enough before the next long climb to the next mountain pass
This is Marie Lake as seen from the top of Selden Pass . With two big mountain passes behind me now, I still have Muir Pass, Mather Pass, Pinchot Pass & Glen Pass lying ahead of me . I am getting stoked for the views lying ahead
Just can't get enough of that blue, contrasting all other colors of nature . This one is called Purple Lake, in the Sierra mountains
