Mile 2650: Canada! 🇨🇦🍁 Google says it would've taken us 25 hours to drive what we walked in 6 months, Mexico to Canada. (Not including the 38 miles we hiked back south bound after these photos were taken to hitch home) I've been having trouble posting these pictures because the right words for these moments escape me, maybe I don't want to admit it's over, maybe I'm just jetlagged but everything is different now. The seeds have been planted and the flowers are flourishing. My friends, it's been an honor walking with you, my thru-soldiers. Wearing your backpacks like suits of armour, faces caked with sweat and mud like war paint, fighting a battle against yourselves, seeking something unnamed, you should all be very proud of what you've done. I love every single one of you and I miss you all more than I can say. -Tater Tots✌🏻 🇲🇽➡️🇨🇦 ✨03/20/18 - 9/23/18✨ #pct18 #pct2018 #hikertrash #northernterminuspct #pacificcresttrail2018 #pacificcresttrail #TheFannyPack #done
Forever the prettiest place - I am very much so looking forward to a healed foot so I can get back at it. With cooler air rolling down into Florida I can't help but dream about the trails here, and another long walk. Scheduling a doctor's appointment to check my progress, and hoping for the best! #pacificcresttrail #pct18 #prettymountain #prettylake #hiking #backpacking #ultralight #ultralighthiking #ultralightbackpacking #sierranevada #kingscanyon #kingscanyonnationalpark
Another great hiking day. Even if there was ice on part of the trail! #pct #pacificcresttrail #pnw #pnwonderland

Who’s ready to get out there? With its wild landscapes free from development, the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail offers unparalleled journeys on foot or horseback along the high and spectacular spine of the Pacific mountain ranges.

Sixty-five degrees and not a cloud in the sky... we could not have asked for a nicer day to hike Mt. Hood. #oregonhiking #pacificcresttrail #mthood
Literally just peed behind a remote gas station cuz there were like, 6 people in line for the bathroom. You can take the girl off the trail, but you can't take the hikertrash out of the girl. 😂 #pct2018 #pct #pacificcresttrail #hikertrash #hikertrashforlife #posttraillife #mexicotocanada
To that one time I hiked up to Cispus Pass, took a look around and realized why everyone kept referring to Washington as a “mini” Sierra. The climbs, the views, the climbs, the remoteness of it all, but did I mention the climbs? There was so much climbing in Washington! - With hard climbs comes epic views. And with every climb up, the views kept getting better and better. 😀 . . . . . #TrailTuesday #pct2018 #PacificCrestTrail #P3Hikers #thruhike #hiking #backpacking #thruhiking #thruhiker #hikethepct #HikingAdventures #TakeAHike #HikeMore #HikingFun #HikerTrash #Dirtbag #GoOutside #OptOutside #WomenWhoHike #WomenWhoExplore #werehikers #SheExplores #TrailLife #herPNWlife #mtnchicks #ChooseMountains #withGuthook #guthookguides

Autumn has arrived and we find ourselves chasing the warming sunlight regularly now. The transition into the desert landscape has begun #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #southerncalifornia #desert #autumn
A few weeks ago I was interviewed by adventure bloggers Lindsey and Jackson at @okaytobeinbetween about life, finding your place in the world, and the positive affects trails have had on me. You can now see that interview here. (Follow the link below), or by following their IG page. Thanks again to Lindsey and Jackson for such a wonderful conversation! http://okaytobeinbetween.com/2018/10/14/an-interview-with-thru-hiker-and-trail-builder-tony-ondrus/ #coloradotrails #optoutside #thruhike #depression #anxiety #shredthegnar #appalachiantrail #pacificcresttrail #continentaldividetrail #thetrek #trekthepct #trektheat #sequoianationalpark #kingscanyonnationalpark #inyonationalforest
Day to 139 to 145: Ashland to Seiad Valley (Mile 1382 to 1446). We’d spent the last week in Washington leapfrogging with some hikers who’d been around back in desert days; they’d told us they would hike until it wasn’t fun anymore. We all agreed it definitely wasn’t fun anymore. And so we went South to finish off our miles in California, finally accepting that we wouldn’t be amongst those one in four hikers who complete a thru-hike in a single year this time around. Once we’d successfully eaten our weight in cornbread and hot soup we thanked the Mountaineer’s Lodge volunteers who’d been so kind and headed down to the highway to stick our thumbs out once more. A local trail angel quickly picked us up, having just dropped our friends at the greyhound station to catch their bus home to Montana; he took us to the outer edges of Seattle just in time to scramble onto the bus. We soon connected in Everett, then Seattle and eventually reached Portland for the night. The next day after coffee and donuts, we continued South to Eugene on the bus and then finally another day and three hitches (the most memorable of which being from a gorgeous 96 year old local lady who’d just been stood up at a dance and then dumped over the phone before picking us up 💔) got us to our final destination of Ashland, just north of the Oregon / Cali border. The OC’s ‘California here we come, right back where we started from, Californiaaaaa, Here we comeeeeeee!’ became our theme song, we even sung it to move a herd of cows off the trail. We hiked through the pine trees, past forest roads frequented by hunters in search of deer, along sun kissed ridges towards the border, and all of the things Californian we’d grown nostalgic for. #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #girlswhohike #pctig #thruhike #sobonobo #patagonia #ospreypacks

Beautiful 37 degree day for a picturesque hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. #PCT #bigbearlake #pacificcresttrail #nature #naturephotography #intothewild #wilderness #outdoors
I still can't get over all the colors from my lil PCT/Timberline adventure. Definitely overshadowed the obscene amount of TP I found and packed out 😑.

A long time ago, some of my good friends hiked the PCT. I mailed some disposable cameras to them to take some photos along the way. Almost 10 years later, I found one of the undeveloped rolls of film in a drawer. Here are a few of the highlights. @lightfondler @emory_marshall @yellowbird4
People we met on the trail stay always in our hearts 😍
Washington was by far the most rugged and gorgeously spooky state we visited. Sarah didn’t really like the cloudiness, fog and cold, but I’m definitely going to be back soon. • • • #washingtonstate #hikewashington #rei #getoutside #aliveoutside #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #hikersofinstagram
اكثر سؤال يوصلني من الناس بعد إنتهائي من رحلة مشي مسار #المكسيك_الى_كندا هو "كيف تغيرت نظرتك للحياة بعد الرحلة؟" والجميع ينتظر او يتوقع مني جواب عميق وطويل. جوابي بكل بساطة ان إيماني بقناعاتي الموجودة من قبل الرحلة اصبح اكثر قوة وثباتاً. قناعتي ان الحياة اثمن ان نضيعها في مكاتب ومباني اسمنتيه. قناعتي ان وجودنا بالقرب من الطبيعة هي فطرتنا الصحيحة وفيها علاج و راحة للروح قبل الجسم. Now that I am back home, Most people ask me "how did the PCT change your perspective on life?". And they expect a deep and thoughtful answer from me. My answer is very simple. The PCT only made my existing belifes stronger. My belifes that life is too precious to be wasted in offices or in concrete buildings, that being close to nature is part of our natural instinct and it helps both body and soul.
“I was there sitting in the airport that morning and just absolutely having a total breakdown. I’m not an emotional person really. I don’t display them that frequently, but just weeping in the terminal. I can distinctly remember... So, I was sitting there in the airport terminal at 6 in the morning trying to fly to Nashville. I just started thinking about all the great times my brother and I had together... The one that really stood out was hiking Mount Lemon as kids. It was one of the happiest times I’ve ever had. So, knowing that and we were planning in 2017 to do the Smoky’s section of the AT... So, combining the plan to hike the Smoky’s and the great memories I had with my brother hiking as a kid, I was just like, ok time to do something really amazing. And the one thing that I always give credit to my brother for was never taking the easy way out of anything. I have always been kind of a slacker in the way that I take the path of least resistance. My brother always set his mind to something and whatever his goal was he would go complete it. So, I just decided what is this impossible goal what is this thing that I have no right to do, but is difficult and because it is difficult I should go and do it? And that was thru-hiking the AT... It really came almost like a lightning bolt. I have no idea where that inspiration came from, but it hit me and from that second I knew it was gonna happen... I’m not a very religious person. It almost sounds like divine intervention or something like that. I don’t know what to attribute it to, but it came at the right place and the right time.” - Two Trails, Episode 07 • • • • #hikertrash #hiking #hikingadventures #hike #thruhike #thruhiking #thruhiker #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrials #appalachiantrail2017 #appalachiantrail2018 #appalachiantrail2016 #northbound #southbound #podcast #pct #pacificcresttrail #awalkinthewoods #awol #georgiatomaine #trail #trails #trailangel #trailcommunity #hikertrashpod #vagabond #vagabondlife #vagabonding
Hi, I’m Krissy, and I just hiked the #pacificcresttrail . I made this account to motivate myself to use up all of my #leftoverressuply . Doing so will help me save up for the next long distance hiking I’m hoping to do next summer - the #appalachiantrail 🙂 #hikertrash #resupply #getoutstayout #thruhikesyndicate
Walking over the bridge before entering Stehekin offered a beautiful view over the water. To one side I had this view and the other side had people fly fishing in the shallow of the water.

We hiked into Lyell Canyon from Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park on the 128th anniversary of when Yosemite became a national park! On October 1, 1890, Yosemite became the third national park in the United States. This was our first visit to this section of the park as Tioga Pass was not yet open when we were in the park last year. This year we were just a day ahead the first projected snowfall of this year! Lyell Canyon Hike along Lyell Creek traverses along the Pacific Crest Trail/John Muir Trail through sub-alpine meadows. The trail eventually leads to Donohue Pass which marks the southern boundary of Yosemite, but we did not venture that far.

Going through 3 months of trail pictures has been very bittersweet. Receiving messages from trail fam has also been very bittersweet. Thankful that @sarkbarkk keeps filling my head with kind and wise words. I keep repeating a line of his to myself when I start to miss the trail. "It's just one very long zero day until the trail calls us all back" 💜 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #PCT #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #JMT #jmt2018 #johnmuirtrail #thruhike #backpacking #mexicotocanada #sierranevadas #california #inyonationalforest #adventure #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #wheredoyouroam
33 miles down the PCT yesterday. Climb a mountain? ✔ Views for days? ✔ Hike home in the dark and survive the perils of the wild? ✔

The 700 miles in the desert were not deprived of wild life. Far from it. There were plenty of rattlesnakes to scare the shit out of me anytime I would step next to one who forgot to rattle at me and that I didn't see. . . . #roamtheplanet #thegreatoutdoors #theoutbound #pctig #optoutside #livauthentic #trekthepct #pacificcresttrail #hiking #backpacking #wildernessculture #getoutside #keepitwild #snake #adventurephotography #pct2018 #pct #mountains #nature #adventure #adrenaline #wild #trail #hikertrash #hiking #hiker #mexicotocanada #california #rattlesnake #wildlife #desert
Waiting for that sun to creep across the valley and melt the ice off the tent. If you need me, I’ll be deeeeep in my sleeping bag.

Does anyone else use brushing their teeth as a food intake restriction? Most evenings you can catch me hustling off to brush my teeth pretty much right after supper. Why? So I don’t continue eating. “Ooooh, cookies sound good! Wait... not with toothpaste!”

Rime Ice or Hoar Frost? Either way, this phenomenon intrigues me. It’s so amazing to see a perfect piece of ice literally on one edge of a blade of glass.

Morning glow along the #pacificcresttrail . Mornings were my absolute favorite while hiking and I am NOT a morning person. But there was just something unexplainable about waking up with the sun have watching her color the world as I took my first few steps of the day. #pct2018 #thetrek #pcta #oregon #thruhike
Finally uploaded all my raw files to my laptop. Excited to look through all my pictures, now being able to process them properly. Will post some of the highlights in the coming weeks (or months...I took so many pictures!)
As my tan lines, bug bite scars and body aches and pains fade away, my memories of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail are still alive and well, living on my blog. - One of the ways I’ve been dealing with the post-trail blues is through my writing, on my blog. - When you spend five months of your life hiking over a thousand miles, you’re bound to have a bunch of stories to share.

The fact that I am a huge PCT fangirl and madly in love with oak leaves changing colors, made visiting this segment of the Pacific Crest Trail extra magical for me. _______ Yes, I said “visiting this trail” because I didn’t actually hike it. I was in the area and knew it was close so I drove to part of it to see the sign. Is that weird?💁🏻‍♀️ ______ #pacificcresttrail #fallleaves 🍁🍂 #visitingfamoustrails
Trail Trivia! 🏕⁉️🎒 For how many miles does the John Muir Trail overlap the Pacific Crest Trail? ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ A: Of the JMT’s 210 total miles, roughly 170 of those miles overlap with the PCT. So much hiker trash!
We have been slacking big time on hiking this year- and I haven't been posting our adventures that we do have nearly enough. We hiked some of the PCT today, stopped at plenty of beautiful lookouts and ate all the treats. Since it's hunting season- this guy was extra decked out in his vest and a beanie (not pictured) 😂 #PCT #Pacificcresttrail #labsofinstagram #dogsthathike #hikingdogs #rei #getout #outdoordogs #hike #hikemoreworryless #chocolatelab #chocolatelabsofinstagram #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram
After a month and a half of PT my sports “hernia” in my hip is like night and day. There is still a long way to go, but if I get to walk away from 2018 with only one accomplishment, I’m very much fortunate it was to run alongside my dad as he made his way to the finish of Western States 😄. . . . . . . . 🏞🏕🌲🌄⛰ . . . #discoverearth #keepitwild #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #wildernessculture #beautifuldestinations #mountains #optoutside #artofvisuals #hokaoneone #hoka #timetofly #trailrunner #exploreeverything #mountainlovers #adventuretime #keepexploring #naturelovers #trailrunning #dirtrunning #ultramarathon #themountainsarecalling #pacificcresttrail #tahoelife #wanderlust #californiaadventure #backpackersworld #westernstates #westernstates100
Trail Trivia! 🏕⁉️🎒 Q: What is the popular nickname for the Appalachian Trail? And why did it get that nickname? ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ A: “The Green Tunnel”! Because most of the trail is engulfed in lush green foliage, at least during peak thru hiking.
