For #transformationtuesday and In celebration of #PacificCrestTrail Permit Day, we wanted to share an in depth look at what thru-hiking (specifically on a #ketodiet ) does to your body. Our founder took Before & After Photos and Dexa Scans during her 2017 PCT Thru hike and describes how her body changed when walking from #mexicotocanada .

Just an average Tuesday in The Sierra.

We tried to make it down the mountain before the storm hit, but fatigue settled in and it was slow going. Bullets of ice shot down from the sky and the air sent a chill through our bones. We sought shelter under the trees for what seemed like hours - cold, wet and bruised. Eventually, the weather cleared and we carried on. I smiled at the sun as her rays warmed my body. Thank you sun. Thank you nature.
One of my favorite photos of last year with @justinhelmkamp and @amit.u.halfway as we found a “flat” place to sleep under the stars of Oregon right under Mount Washington. . . The real feelings were exhaustion and relief as we were finally not moving. We had said goodbye to @jesskraft earlier and all I wanted was to be done. My feet were hurting and my next out was 12 miles to the next road. In fact, I think I told the guys my decision that night I was getting off trail. . . The next morning we hiked out and I was still faced with that decision as we crossed the highway into Jefferson Park area. . . What got me to continue on the trail? Pride. Stubbornness. Seeing the finish line of completing the trail. My friends continuing on after me. Me being true to the reason I was out there. . . I had turned the radio to my favorite station when I just need some words of encouragement. Channel 804 Straight Talk coming at me from Richmond Virginia! 😂 . . I called @bambooathiker14 as I walked over the 2000 mile marker (from Mexico) because I needed help to push on. It was a short hike of 90 miles but we have also shared over 5000 miles of hiking together and it seemed appropriate to share that moment with him. . . Surround yourself with greatness. I didn’t complete the trail or attain this goal because of me. It was because of the individuals I was surrounded by. Find an amazing team and go far. . . #exploreoregon #pnwonderland #pnw #westisbest #pct2017 #wildernessculture #pct2018 #pct2019 #thruhike #thruhiking #outdoorcollective #garagegrowngear

I just realized I never shared this incredible gift from my dear friend @fastwalking_enthusiast. She took one of my photos from each month of our PCT thru-hike and turned them into these gorgeous oil paintings. Do you recognize any of these spots?
Getting a gift from the mayor of my hometown - Ruse.

If I need a break in the office then I remember this photo, 2017 on the PCT, just before Kennedy Meadow North. a good day, many kilometers hiked and met a hiker from ashville, who was full of praise for my performance! we met again in canada at the end of the trail, we hugged each other for a very long time, that's trail magic! #everydreamcometrue #hiking #outdoor #lovemylife #pct2017 #foreverandever #doitagain #nature #changetheworld #changeyourlife #youcandoit
Wearily peaceful, reflective evenings spent camping in California’s high desert, on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017. ⛰
PCT 2017 Cascade in Obsidian Area - did you know that the native americans used obsidian for knifes and arrowheads. You can still find a lot of obsidians there⛰😃🏕🇺🇸 #jackwolfskin #earthscope #lucky #familygoals #pct #pct2017 #hiking hiking #hikingadventures #familytime #love #food #water #loveones #heaven #woods #mountains #trekthepct #pctsobo #oregon #oregonhikes #oregontrail #lostlake #sectionhike #pacificcresttrail #usa #travel #outdoor #obsidian #peoplewhohike
Me and Stranger Danger looking particularly nonchalant on our way up to Mt. Whitney. In reality, I was struggling with my first time on the snow. Pure grace and agility guys, I’m tellin’ ya.
I’m pretty sure this photo sums up all that Thru Hiking is, CHIPS! Keep that precious cargo on top. You don’t want to ruin the crunch. What’s your favorite trail snack?
Remember that time in the Sierra, in 2017, when there was dry trail? . . Me neither. 💁‍♂️
Midweek naps....again with the famous @jackalope_pat . You should probably check this guy out. Not only did he hike the snow covered Sierra range in 2017 while on the PCT, he’s also getting fishing poles into the hands of kids who don’t have them. - #pct2017 #naps #humpday #backpacking #byland #pct #hiking #thruhike
When you’re, like, really done with the desert heat. #wrongsectiontobringcheese #canIbumsomeelectrolytesoffofyou
The Pacific Crest Trail, when you’re here, you’re family (in the @olivegarden guy voice).
Visiting an old friend. Got a little teary-eyed. #pct #pct2017

In writing about adventures I've been part of, intensity seems as predictable like weather seems predictable - not much. In a section of #inthefootstepsofasaint story which I'm revisiting this week, I've been reminded that after lowering my guard, just north of a challenging but relatively straightforward month hiking from Mount Whitney to Yosemite Valley in spring 2017, the next section wandered up the Pacific Crest trail to Sonora Pass, in the most spectacular scenery I'd encountered. Yet, as snow yielded to the green of summer, nothing could have prepared my mind for the stress of being constantly challenged by water; sometimes calm water, often fierce water, but always there - ahead, and behind - and often up to my waist. Periods of uncomfortable solitude were interspersed with the company of other people, as well as the sunshine, flowers, birds and animals of summer. And periods of deep concern and loneliness - then bringing a certain quality of stress - are now special and welcome companions causing joy, as I write some, save some and throw some in the fire. It's fun to craft a story from such a plethora of raw nature experiences. As I forge on in the adventure of writing #inthefootstepsofasaint , I do find myself craving the scent of the juniper and pine, the roar of the falls and the deep warmth of Californian sunshine. If I close my eyes, I imagine myself beside falls and creeks whose water has cut channels, to the parts of my pysche which make me feel as intensely alive as the icy spray flinging itself in my eyes on one crossing after another as the days marched on. The remote north of The Yosemite is one of the wildest places I've ever seen. Get a half mile from the trail and you'll be in spots only four-legged animals have ever been. Spend a week there and I know I'll find parts of my imagination that I've never been. #yosemite #johnmuir #california #sierranevada #pct2017 #pct2019 #mountains #pacificcresttrail #inthefootstepsofasaint @pctassociation @yosemitenps

D A Y D R E A M I N G. All the damn time. . . . Sometimes I have to laugh at the two competing sides of myself. On the one hand, there’s the yoga instructor who preaches being present, practicing non attachment, and finding gratitude for what’s in front of you. On the other, there’s the hiker trash who craves a life of constant sweat and dirt, a pack on my back, and an endless path in front of me. They don’t always coincide, but they do challenge me to find balance in my life. . . . #pacificcresttrail #pcta #pctig #pct2017 #fireandice #backpacking #hikertrash #pacificcresttrials #trekthepct #thetrek #thruhikingwillbreakyourheart (really) #getoutdoors #bonsaihikes

Do you know the Joy's of a Happy Place? I define a happy place as a spot you go to and all the hustle and bustle of daily routines just fades away. This is one of mine Big Branch Marsh. The water, the scenery, the birds, and the sound of the boards shifting with each step I take just melts all the stress and the overwhelming feelings right out of me. I hope you all have a place like this and If you do, dont forget to go visit it from time to time.

I’m totally stealing this picture of me and Lucky from @joshcomps because it gives me all the good feels of tromping through the snow in the sierras and because @a.labrenz looks adorable 😊
Why did I start doing long distance hiking? Honestly, I can't give you an answer. I don't know what sent me on this course. The Appalachian Trail was my first backpacking trip. Ever. But since then, since that summer and autumn trekking the east coast, I can't seem to find anything else I'd rather be doing. There is something about it that draws me. The struggle, the hardship, the beauty, all of it. And through it all, I have found the space where life makes the most sense; where life is allowed to vibrate most intensely. Even if that moment only lasts a second, it is worth the days, weeks, months that bring you to it. . . #hikertrash #ruined #saved #appalachiantrail #at2016 #pacificcresttrail #pct2017 #odt #pnt #teararoa #teararoatrail #ta2019 #thetrek #hikevibes #whyihike #peoplewhohike #peoplewhoexplore #optoutside #takelessdomore #hikeformentalhealth #thruhiking #purenewzealand #sonyalpha #wanderlust #sectionhiker #getoutstayout #natgeotravel #rei1440project #nobo #sobo

My photo book “The Pacific Crest Trail in Pix” is almost done. Putting the feelings from the trail into words and 80 pages of color pictures took way more time than walking from Mexico to Canada. But while waiting for the final (hopefully) copy of the book, I’m feeling a sense of pride at seeing a thing through to its finish. . Get at me if you’re looking to buy a copy. . #pct #pct2017 #pacificcresttrail #pacificcresttrail2017
PCT 15' and 17' were quite a bit different, even though they were both nobo hikes. PCT 15' Malkolm almost died posting up on a rock 1/4 mile before the shelter. Brutally tired it was hard to push the last bit. Other cat I hiked with thru the Sierras 15' was Baldor. He walked completely off the mountain on the wrong side... As night came upon us at Sonora Pass the road was still closed for the winter, but we huddled around the bathrooms for the night before walking down into KM North. #Sierras #pct2017 #snow #hiker #pct #instagood #pctig #sierranevada #alaska #mountain #thisispackrafting #train #training #hiking #thruhike #breatheadventure #visualsoflife #inspiration #amazing #adventure #exploretocreate #naturelovers #mountains #simplelife #optoutside #roamtheplanet #picoftheday #photooftheday #nature #snow #hikertrash
Northern California, Pacific Crest Trail. It’s funny how you seem to forget about the difficult parts of the trail, especially when the new year rolls around. But those are the parts that you need, the parts that give you perspective. They are the parts that you come to understand are worth it. Worth every blister, sunburn, cut, bruise and strain. Worth the monotony and boredom that can creep in. Worth every unexpected challenge and terrifying moment, every bad day and every bit of self doubt. Even worth missing those that you love dearly. They make it all a little more real, a little more raw. And a lot more rewarding.
Desert day bud lights and then onto the L.A aqueduct to night hike.. This day Splinter attempted to complete the 24/24/24 challenge.. 24 beers, 24 miles, 24 hours: aka suicide- I think she got to 17 and fell asleep on a aqueduct cap around 1am .. #PCT #pct2017 #hike #desertcrew #nighthike #pacificcresttrail #california #itsnotcold #nighthike #optoutside #desert #stayhydratedkids
