I read #wild recently and it only reinforced my belief that my sister @dawnstar is a #badass #superwoman #pct #pacificcresttrail . At 16 she and a friend planed out, saved up and hiked the pct for 5 months. My sister is a bad-ass!! She is currently recovering from ACL surgery, so if you feel like saying โ€œhiโ€ now is a good time. Xo T.
Heading out on a long hike, thru-hike or horseback ride this year? Now is the time to train and build experience. Hike often. Test your gear. But primarily toughen your body and learn backcountry skills. _________________________________ Youโ€™re out on your own on the #PCT . start the learning journey, build up your mental toughness, and make sure your body is ready to handle endurance hiking. __________________________________ A. Exercise a lot. As much as you can. Itโ€™ll be hard work on day one. The PCT is not a good place to have a medical issue that could have been prevented by knowing your body better. B.Take practice trips. Go backpacking this weekend. And next weekend. C. The trail requires mental strength. Prepare for very difficult days in heat, rain, wind, snow and more. __________________________________ Planning, training and preparing is one of the funnest (and most exciting) parts of the experience! ๐Ÿ“ท: @thewildoutsiders
Glacier Peak Wilderness | July 31 With less than one week left I found myself in a difficult position. On the one hand, I wanted more than anything to be finished, to not have to get up and walk 30 miles everyday like I had done for the past 80 days. But there was also the part of me that never wanted it to end. Back in Southern California, a few weeks into the hike, walking all day had become my new reality. So, when I did finish I knew I wouldnโ€™t be going home so much as picking up and relearning an old way of doing life that I barely remembered.
4 months since I finished the PCT, and it already feels like a lifetime ago. Not a day goes by that I don't think of it. #pct #pctclassof2018 #pacificcresttrail #pacificcresttrail2018 #thruhike #hikertrash #themightproject #mightyhikers2018 #sierra #dorothylake #yosemite #backpacking #hiking

Jessie Greger posted this on my Ketogenic Backpackers group with Next Mile Meals. I am impress! Currently Iโ€™m doing a whole 30, but mainly Iโ€™m keto during my daily life. But what I havenโ€™t done is be completely keto during my trips. Her results are amazing! We all know keto is doing amazing in the oncology department and other chronic health areas. Just great to see results from people you have been following! #keto #ketogenicdiet #throughhike #pct #backpackers
Next time you go into the wild, and no humans are within eye sight, scream. Yell so fucking loud that the animals look at each other like โ€œdamn that ones lost it.โ€ Let yourself lose it for a second and get it out. Then take a deep breath in, release. Repeat this a few times. Now listen, closely and with purpose. For just a little while your mind will be quiet for you. Youโ€™ll hear things you didnโ€™t hear before around you. And youโ€™ll want to stay there forever. Donโ€™t worry about disrupting nature, itโ€™ll understand - even it, shakes and swishes and booms when it needs to let go. _____________________________________________________________ Sometimes release isnโ€™t pretty, most cases itโ€™s not. Sometimes itโ€™s loud and disruptive and confusing. Lean into it like youโ€™re going 100 on a motorcycle, donโ€™t just take your hands off the wheel. Direct it with intention and purpose. Drive the damn thing. When youโ€™re yelling, yell not just to yell but to let go of what you are harboring so the universe can break that energy up for you and make you new. A shaky building may not need another support beam leaning on it adding pressure, but more so, a new foundation, a new approach, a new blueprint all together. No one is stopping you but you. _____________________________________________________________ Afternoon thoughts, by me

**So much excitement!** โ€ข I plan on doing 2 shorter thru-hikes this summer (still researching trails) and have teamed up with @bonfire to create 2 t-shirt designs in order to raise money for my hikes! This is one of the designs that you can order (link in bio) which came from my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike where I often said I had to โ€œkeep on keepinโ€™ onโ€ through all of the difficult times on trail. When you are doing something as daunting as a 2,650 mile thru-hike, sometimes the only way to continue walking is to put one foot in front of the other and not think about the huge mountain ahead. โ€ข I am wearing a small hoodie in the color Indigo. Thank you for all of your continued support and I cannot wait to share more adventures with you!! #wearbonfire

Mt Adams 12,276' ยทยทยทยทยทยทยทยทยทยท Mt. Adams is the often forgotten volcano of our area...and it is a BIG mountain! Measured in terms of volume, Mt Adams is second only to Mt Shasta and is the third highest peak in the Cascades. And there's hardly anybody out there...you are pretty much guaranteed a true wilderness experience๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’™ BONUS-the #WABDR goes right along the west flank of Mt Adams, it is an incredibly scenic section of the route. * * * * * #mtadams #wilderness #wildernessculture #pnw #pnwonderland #iphonephotography #nature #naturalbeauty #naturephotography #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #onlyinwashington #pacificcresttrail #hiking #backpacker #pctassociation #campingcollective #backcountry #bdr #backcountrydiscoveryroutes #upperleftusa #pnwescapes #explorewashington #explorewashstate #pnwroamers #destinationpnw #pnwcollective #thegreatpnw #pnwisbeautiful

Yesterday I found a poem I wrote almost a year ago. I don't write many poems, and I don't think I've ever shared one yet I feel compelled to share this one in particular. These photos I've chosen to share with it are from Forrester Pass, the highest point on the PCT at 13,200ft. I had been growing sicker and sicker from elevation over the previous weeks, headache, nausea, coughing, personality changes, pulmonary edema. In short, I felt like I was slowly dying, but at the same time felt more alive than ever. My spirit thrives on this type of adventure, not sitting around in the safety of a home or plugging away at some career in hopes of a 'secure' future. The skills, knowledge of self, and mental fortitude I gain truly LIVING each day to the fullest are (to me) the greatest security I could ever desire. The only guarantee in life is death and knowing that so deeply I hope to live a life that is not only fulfilling to me but has less and less negative impact on future generations with each passing year. TIME TRAVEL Hey you! living for tomorrow like today will come again tell me the secret of time travel because you seem to know the way back to when life was simple and our bodies young please help me see the way because you live for tomorrow like you donโ€™t need today show me how to time travel because there was something I forgot to do live #mentalhealth #servicedog #pacificcresttrail #pcta #trekthepct #thruhike #poetry #womenwhohike #liveyourbestlife #poweredbyplants

(The many faces of me ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) Itโ€™s an interesting time in my life right now. I have a lot of uncertain feelings and emotions swirling around inside me. It reminds me of when these pictures were taken (at least the first 3). About 3 months before I graduated college and at that moment I look very happy. But in fact I had so many uncertain things up in the air; my dock business was struggling in the slow season so I was super broke, my girl friend left me (but we still lived together in the house we bought, awkward) I still hadnโ€™t found a job after college, and no idea where I was going to live or what I would be doing. I finally got an offer from a company in Seattle to be a Construction Engineer and life was too easy for two years. One of the last things I told my former employer was โ€œlife is too easy right now, it makes me uncomfortable, we need to struggle more,โ€ and he quite literally looked at me like I had a dick growing out of my face in disgust lol...Fast forward to today, and as I fix up my Washington house to sell in a few weeks. I have no idea what Iโ€™ll be doing or where Iโ€™ll be once this house is listed and when I step foot on the PCT or even after trail. I donโ€™t know why I choose to live my roller coaster type of lifestyle, but for some reason Iโ€™m always doing it lol. I just feel better with my back against the wall. Which is why the Pacific Crest Trail self-supported record is so appealing to me. Iโ€™m such a long shot from breaking it, but really I donโ€™t care about records, I just want to push myself into those dark places where I seem to operate at my best and think with the best clarity... I have been finding myself thinking a lot on why I turned out the way I did. Iโ€™m certainly a weirdo for liking to do things under stress and being a nomadic type of human. But I find myself so excited for uncertainty, for adventure!

Ollalie Lake Resort claimed to be 607 miles away from Canada. I came a far way - little did I know that the best part was still ahead of me. . It was quite a exciting day. After the shitty day leaving Bend (late start at 9am, hiking through lava fields and getting to camp at 8:45pm after very fast 31 miles) I allowed myself to sleep in an hour. Shortly after getting up I saw two deer, then continued hiking through burnt trees and smoke. Mt Jefferson was hiding behind a curtain of smoke - pity. I crossed Dead Horse Creek - at least that's how we called it after what had happened to a unlucky equestrian a couple of weeks earlier - the rotting horse still visible for those who dared to look. Had lunch with Boo Boo and her mom. Then I hiked up a pass, finally leaving the burnt area. Mt Jefferson was still hiding behind the smoke. Coyote encounter on trail - we were looking at each other for half a minute, wondering what had brought us there to meet. I passed a few lakes. Cold wind came up. Was it going to rain? I'd forgotten my rain dance the night before...rain was direly needed. There were some clouds forming and the wind eventually blew away the smoke. I got to Ollalie Lake and called it a day. Nice little spot, few cabins if you're early and have the money - or free camping like I did. The store has only energy to power its fridges - no light bulbs - which means they have to close when it gets dark. You could easily resupply here. I had resupplied the day before in Bend so I was good, went to set up my tent and get some well earned rest. What a day. And there were many more to come. 607 miles to Canada.
The Hiking Prodigy joins me for episode 12! This man is the tenth person to complete the Calendar Year Triple Crown, having hiked the PCT, CDT, and AT all in the year of 2018. We talk all about the mental strength require to walk the length of the United States three times! Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and elsewhere!
We often hear that hru-hiking is a mental struggle more than anything else. I am curious to know the words you tell yourself when the day is hard and taking another step seems impossible. My friend @redeyechronicles thru-hiked the AT and repeated โ€œThere is nowhere else Iโ€™d rather be.โ€ as many time as needed throughout the trail. It was true, but sometimes hard to remember. The other day, I found myself repeating FUCKFUCKFUCK nonstop during training... not the most positive of mantras but it did get me through so whatever ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Whatโ€™s yours? Can we gather of collections of wise or hilarious mantras? Go to my Story to screenshot an blank one of these and share :) ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ฉ #classof2019 #pct2019 #pct2018 #pcta #pct #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #thruhiker #trekthepct #backpackerlife #thruhike #pctig #thetrek #backpackerlife #illustration #happytrails #womenwhohike #optoutside #procreate #ipadpro #applepencil #appalachiantrail #trektheat #at2019
The winter duldrums and cabin fever are here. I looked through my photo archive recently and was drawn to the thousands of images taken while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (which spans from Mexico to Canada) I haven't opened this archive for years and the rush of nostalga came over me. Day after day, hiking, eating, pain, joy and living as simple as possible. Seeing places the majority of humans will never see, probing the edges of your own mental and physical limits (and sometimes exceeding them). It's a world so far away from the one made of cubicles, highways, clocks, newscycles and society as we know it. An existence where people talked face to face not through screens. I learned a lot from that experience, now I just need to not forget what I learned. Layers of light in the Sierra Nevada.

I was so close to apply for the PCT today. I struggled with myself for the last weeks, as I canโ€™t tell you how much I miss the life on the PCT. But this year other things are important and i would love to hike some shorter trails- from Mt Blanc to the Matterhorn, the Landmannalaugur in Iceland, the GR20 on Corsica. But I do consider earning enough money to hike it next year again.
