🍹🍺HAPPY HOUR🥃🍻 Hope your weekend is off to a great start. Here’s @ryanstoyer slappin’ the bag as we post up at the Mazama Village Campground in Crater Lake National Park. Last year this place was empty due to the forest fires so we raided the empty campground lockers and found 15L of wine. Needless to say we made friends quickly but didn’t get a hitch out for another day!
Washington was a good choice.
It was so good reconnecting with trail life this past week. It feels so right to be dirty and not care, swim in alpine lakes, and walk beneath massive snow capped mountains. The trail is one of those places that has become another home. Super glad I could share this experience with @ungerwhere and @justinhelmkamp , thanks for dragging me down to Oregon to hike some miles! Still got 70 or so miles to make up in northern Washington, looking forward to that section and more #pct2018 #pct2017 #pctig #sectionhiker #oregon #sisters
Even if it is possible to run the entire PCT on ramen and snickers, personally I don't think it will pay off in the long term. Proper food not only will drive you further but most of all will pump your mood up, especially during harsh weather. Not to mention it won't destroy your stomach. I'm completely addicted to warm meals, oatmeal and hot tea but after thruhike on PCT probably I will never touch nuts again, I'm so fed up with them (pun intended). And I'm insanely in love with my stove Windburner from @msr_gear. Never ever had better one. . . . . . . #pct #pctig #pct2017 #pct2018 #mountainlovers #outdooradventures #longdistance #thruhike #backpackers #sierranevada #johnmuirtrail #womenwhohike #womenwhoinspire #pcta #hikerlife #outdoorsy #outdoorsygirl #california #adventure #mountainlife #outdoorfood #msrgear #ourcamplife #middaybreak #lunchtime #mountaingirls #solohike #soloadventure #warmmeal #oatmealforever
Can't remember where on the pct is. But being out hiking this weekend made me remember how much I love waking up and doing to sleep in nature. All movement dependent on your own legs. And the great feeling that comes from having walked all that way between camps. With no other obligations than keeping on walking. With nowhere to be except for the next town before your food runs out. And stopping at beautiful spots for rest and enjoyment
Tem dias que eu preciso olhar pra trás.

One year ago today I took my first steps on the PCT. I came up 1000 miles short of completing my thru hike but I’m anxiously awaiting hitting the trail again!
Vicky looking back on San Jacinto Peak - 10,834 ft. We climbed the mountain the day before and made camp at around 9,000 ft. It was the coldest and longest night we experienced on the #PCT , but the view of the mountain while back in the low desert had us eager for more snow and bigger mountains as we tried to escape the heat. #pacificcresttrail #PCT2017 #dirtbag #hikertrash #bearfishliving #teammidwestskinny #midwestskinny #socal #sanjacinto
The most fun I had in my section hike was reading through the trail log book at the cafe in Seiad Valley. . I had breakfast with a few 2018 thru-hikers and a 2017 thru-hiker who was finishing up a section she missed like I was (amazing food by the way). . I was able to go through the 2015 log book and see the names of and messages left by all of my 2015 hiker friends. What a trip down memory lane! I got a lump in my throat scrolling through the pages. . I found Jill’s entry (Bushtit). She tried the pancake challenge and failed. I wasn’t brave enough (or hungry enough) on my section to even try. . Miss you 2015ers. Hope you’re all doing well! . . . . . #pctig #pct #pct2018 #pct2015 #pct2017 #seiadvalley #california #norcal #hiking #backpacking #hikingadventures #book #memories #nostalgia #thruhike #pacificcresttrail #trailfamily #daysgoneby #happy
Throwback to last year on the Pacific Crest Trail. We arrived into Shasta the day before and still hiked up 5 miles from the trailhead to avoid a crazy total amount of uphill. Still had a good amount of elevation day the next day but glad we were not as tired so we could enjoy and embrace the views.
One year ago! On my way from mexico to canada! day 100 on trail! in this time the pacific crest trail was my passion. remember that day every second, high of the day: stefania and mike came from lone pine and had a present for me: 3 cheeseberger! best of my life!!!! #pct #pct2017 #hike #hiking #adventure #adventureoften #outdoors #cheeseburgers #lonepine #highsierra
Southern Oregon Wildfires are beginning to flood the Rogue Valley with smoke which in and of itself is less than desirable. However, those sunsets though.... -------------------------------------------------- View of the World last night from Upper Table Rock trail. A popular local trail just outside of Medford, Oregon. It's a great little hike of 1.25 miles and 700ish feet of elevation gain.
Just got this bad boy in the mail! This was one of my favorites from my trip on the PCT. First night in the Sierras, I remember it like it was yesterday! #nationalphotolab #metalprints #pcta #pct
It’s been a year and I still can’t get enough of Washington. I can’t wait to go back.

This morning I was in the middle of a conversation at breakfast. I felt my nose start to run. Since there was no napkin near me, and all I had on was a pair of shorts, I leaned down and wiped my nose on the leg of my shorts then resumed conversation. . In the moments shortly following I came to realize that I had possibly become too wild and free and don't know how to act in the city.
I know it’s a day early, but I hope you have the most wonderful birthday Dos Tacos. You are a truly amazing human and I love you to bits. #pct2017 #trailsidereunion #pctig #birthdaycakeoreos #dostacos @torrancemclaren
We also do trail maintenance on the Pizza Crust Trail! ---------------------------------------------- Want the shirt? Search, "Lint Hikes" or "hiker trash panda" on Amazon. #pizzacrusttrail #hikertrashpanda
Back at it again!
A year ago today I left on my little PCT hike!! My how time flies and nestalgia hits on anniversaries! Excited to pick up where I left off and reach the Canadian border in the future! So peaceful and pretty even when my feet were so swollen I could barely get my shoes off and my kidneys hurt from dehydration!! #hikingislife #pct2017 #hikingallday #sorefeet #pacificcresttrail #pacificcresttrailsurvivor #training #healthylifestyle #healthybrain #solitude
Currently hitchhiking our way up the 395 👍🏽 Hoping to make it to Yosemite tonight and get on trail tomorrow morning. I think our sign will say: WE DON’T SMELL (YET). Would you pick us up on the side of the highway?
Had to put our PCT dreams on hold this year because we both got into grad school. So we decided to hike the JMT again - but this time SOBO (southbound). Looking forward to a snow free trail and a lot less detours. Weeeeee.
It’s going to be a busy week! Here’s to smiles over miles, or whatever you may encounter.
Pretty much a year ago since I was stumbling amongst Washington giants with these two dudes. - - - #pct2017 #pacificcresttrail #sobo #washington #mtrainier #landscape #hikingwithfriends
Happy 1st Anniversary, PCT. Yeah, I’d do it all again. Correction: #hellyeah
Day 113 – July 15, 2018: Today I had the joy of being briefly back on the PCT and the greater joy of providing trail magic to these lovely ladies! On the right is the wonderful @dpmartin7 (AKA Flamingo Sunrise) who I used to work with and may or may not have pressured into hiking the trail and on the left is @taylorweixl (AKA Canadian Treasure) a trail friend of Flamingo’s. I had a blast doting on these hikers in Truckee, CA thanks to @lgholl for letting me borrow the cabin. It was such a treat to cook these hikers mountains of food and swap trail stories. Today I hiked out with them and completed 4.2 PCT miles that we skipped last year which is why I’ve brought back my daily chronicle format. It felt terrific to be back on the trail crushing miles in the crushing heat. Onwards to Canada, ladies! . . . Miles: 8.4 (4.2 out and back) Starting location: Truckee, CA Ending location: Oakland, CA SOTD: "Forgott My Name" – Barefoot Surrender #pct2017 #pct #pct2018
Been about a year since I started this wild ride. Feeling my feelings. 😭
Our first weekend work party ever was quite the success! ----------------------------------------------- It was a small crew that we renamed, "the backers," due to all of the back issues amongst us less than old, but more than young Volunteers. Back issues or not, Yukiko, Pete, Laurie, Henry, and Mick got some great work done on the trail this weekend. ----------------------------------------------- Speaking of great things! Lara, our first ever cook, cooked the most delicious food for all of us. Big thank yous from all of us to Lara for all of the effort put in to make our first, "food provided," work weekend such a delicious success! Thank you Lara! ----------------------------------------------- We took this pic moments before leaving after lightning and the smell of smoke forced us to get off trail and call it a weekend early. Pictured l to r: Mick, Laurie, Yukiko, Pete, and our hero Lara :) #grousegapsorockers
Have we mentioned the views while Volunteering? Well if we haven't, we should've! -------------------------------------------- Last night's sunset at Grouse Gap didn't fail to inspire us :)
The first day I was on the PCT. It's been a year and I'm still on my journey. Thousands of stories that I can tell. The most magical adventure I've ever done💃 Miss all the trail angels and hiker trashes👼🚮 - #PCT2017 #SOBO #HartsPass #Washington #GoPro #Hero4Silver #OspreyPacks #Traveling #Adventure #Backpacker #HikerTrash #Overlander #WhereToBurgie #TriathlonOfAmericas #FirstPart #Trekking #ToTheEndOfTheWorld
This Week was my one year ago since I started the Pacific Crest Trail and ive edited over 100 Videos from that trip so far, many more to go. #happytrails #pacificcresttrail #pct2017 #pct2018 #hiking #hikingadventures #thruhike #lovetheoutdoors #getoutside #sendit #soboordie #missthepct #needtohike #longdistancehiking
Stinging for some warm desert heat, big open night sky's and some big mileage days
What a great morning! I got to wake up at Grouse Gap near Mt. Ashland and take in view towards Mt. Shasta that just a week ago was in serious peril due to the Klamathon Fire. As I took in said view I said a silent thank you to all that put in the work to save that view, those houses, and all the livelihoods that were saved. ---------------------------------------------- Anyhow, on a whim I decided to drive into Ashland to get some real food rather than that Mountain House breakfast I had packed and found myself in a cafe sitting next to the Cal Fire folks. Needless to say, I introduced myself and explained my thoughts from above and told them how thankful we all are. To be honest these men were quite taken aback by being thanked, humble, and very appreciative. To top it all off, they also mentioned how much they enjoyed hiking and thanked us for the work we do to keep the trails open. ---------------------------------------------- So fast forward to this moment, they are admittably sleep deprived and punch drunk, (their words.) Thus, we have Cal Fire officials donning silly glasses for a group selfie as they laugh their asses off! ---------------------------------------------- Well done Gentleman, well done! #klamathonfire #calfire
Almost one year ago. Camping with a view. One of the best views I've had probably, while the Old Dirty Razor settles grumpily for the second best spot. Age, personal hygiene, and cutting corners. I rest my case. _ #throwback #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2017 #PCT #thruhiking #mountains #wanderlust #Hiking @pctassociation @pacific.crest.trail
one year ago! a break in san francisco with stefania, 2 days later we went to the high sierra back, hiking the pct!!!! #pct #pct2017 #sanfrancisco #goldengatebridge #hikingadventures #hikking #bestfriends #adventure
It's about to go down. Our first ever weekend work project! Food, work, and laughter all weekend! #grousegapsorockers
One year ago today, I set out on the greatest and most challenging journey of my life. On July 12th, I left the Canadian border to walk solo across the USA, 2600 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail to the Mexican border. So many days alone in the wilderness. So many climbs. So many hurdles. So much fear. So much laughter. So much singing. So much joy. So much clarity. - I discovered integral lessons about myself that I had become blindsided by; the things I need, the things I don’t, what inspires me, what doesn’t, my strengths, my weaknesses, my truth and the importance to be my authentic self - regardless of what others think of me. It was the best choice I have ever made. - Since then, I have welcomed an incredible array of humans into my life, who support, encourage and inspire me. We all need more of that. Find your tribe. I miss every moment of the PCT; some were a lot harder than others, but with that darkness, I realised I still can glow. There is a light. Life truly is about putting one foot in front of the other. When you want to give up on it all, stand up, breathe and stay. I did. Keep going.🚶🏼‍♀️💖🙏🏼 - - - - #pct #pct2017 #pctsobo #pctsobo2017 #pacificcresttrail #pacificcresttrail2017 #canada #mexico #usa #hiking #thruhike #thruhiking #camping #journey #love #happiness #travel #life #inspiration #motivation #dontgiveup #pcos #womenwhohike #strength #getoutdoors #pctassociation
I miss this with a deep ache.. Every. Single. Day. What a privilege it is to have a healthy body to take you on grand adventures!! #pct #pct2018 #pct2017 #pacificcresttrail #hikewashington #thruhike #hikertrash #pctig
When you do a road trip after you hiked the entire west coast mountain range you tend to make stops for some pretty awesome people you met along the way. I may not do to much walking on beaches but I do like long walks in the mountains and catching up with people I met along way. Just a short walk. Happy Trails! . . . #california #water #staywild #friendship #friends #roadtrip #walk #optoutside #sailing #sanfrancisco #adventure #summer #memories #hikertrash #pctig #pct2017 #latergram
I’ve been featured in the July edition of my hometown paper, the Everson-Nooksack News! I’m famous 😛
The Pacific Crest Trail for us was about taking life by the reins and riding it like a tree shaped similar to an ostrich.
Would give it all to be in NorCal with my trail fam right now... It’s been so hard to see all of the photos from the #pctclassof2018 of the trail post the Sierras. For those of you who don’t know, I got a stress fracture last year while trying to hike the PCT and didn’t get to finish my hike. I got off trail around the halfway point and my heart continues to long for the trail, the community and the life of a thru-hiker. For now I’ll continue to live vicariously through my friends on trail but hoping to one day finish what I started last May. #pct2017 #trailfam
Talking to fellow friends that are currently hiking the #pct2018 . Pretty interesting talking about how my year on the trail is just so night and day compared to walking thru mosquito swarms. Here lies a photo of what should have been a seasonal stream that just completely turned into a waterfall. Happy to have experienced such a wonderful time in the Sierras. . . . #hiking #backpacking #backpacker #thruhike #hikertrash #mountains #pct #pct2017 #sierra #getoutside #optoutside #staywild #california #adventure #memories #water
The hiker community is strong. In a week, a Bob I’ve never met is picking me up from SeaTac and driving me to Greenwater, where I’ll be spending the night with Valerie and her husband before they drop me off at the trailhead. I met Valerie and Jeff briefly last year on the PCT while they were bringing cold drinks and snacks to the Urich Cabin, and hauling out hiker trash, like they do every year. (Like actual trash, not humans). That’s also where I met @thedosukinuta , who kindly extended a permit to me, which is why I’m able to hike the Wonderland Trail at all this year. The hiker community is strong and beautiful, and I’m so proud to be a part of it. T-7 days. I’m coming for ya Washington.
So, wir sind unterwegs und schreiben wieder Blog:Pct2017heyholetsgo@wordpress. Somewhere between lizard point and Fowey in cornwall!

7-2 Trail Day 68: miles 813.4-826.3 . . . Woke up for Mather Pass at 3:45. Lots of sun cups on the way before catching up to the boys to plan our ascent. The climb up was steep - near vertical twice. Palms were incredibly sweaty by the time I got to the top, and my heart was racing. . . Down wasn't as bad. Sun hadn't hit that side of the mountains yet so the snow was firm enough to kick steps. Once we were around the waterfall, there were a lot of ice cliffs. Then we followed the river the rest of the day, and eventually renamed the trail: Pacific Creek Trail. Name fit. Today was 100% not a No Wet Shoes Day. On the other hand, the switchbacks were the largest water feature I've ever seen. . . Once past the trail-creek was avalanche territory. The amount of trees the snow had taken out was incredible, and reminded me of how strong nature forces can be. . . I was first to camp around 2:30, so I decided to fulfill a hiking goal: skinny dipping in the Sierras. Hooooooooly shit talk about knock-the-breath-right-out-of-you freezing cold. It was an automatic scramble to get out after jumping in; thank goodness for survival instinct because it was too cold to think. Soon @gregorio_lorenz and Rainfly came up and Fish spent practically the rest of the afternoon splashing around happy. . . Fish brought back dinner, so I fulfilled another goal of fresh fish while on trail. Otherwise it was a lazy evening with a very late fire. Tomorrow promises to be a lazy morning as well #hikersnothiking . . . #soleonthepct #inkonpaper #pctig #trekthepct #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #travelbyfoot #hikertrash #thruhiker #thruhiking #sierranevadamountains #sierranevada #sierras #mather #matherpass #pctclassof17 #pct #pct2017 #pacificcresttrail #skinnydipping #coldwater #fuckingcold #freshfish #sleepinthedirt #getoutstayout #exploreoutdoors #adventure #tramily #hikingindresses
it’s been a whole year since I left for the PCT and while I could totally write post after post about my feelings toward it (and will absolutely keep doing so), i’ll keep this one short and sweet with a selfie of me covered in dirt after finishing a 37 mile day! . . . . #pct2017 #pct #pacificnorthwest #pacificcresttrail #lessismore #optoutside #rei1440project #backpacking #hiking #takeahike #hikingadventures #neverstopexploring #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #exploremore #choosemountains #liveoutdoors #liveauthentic #keepitwild #wildernessculture #outsideisfree #healthyliving #backpacking
Got back to the PCT this weekend for the first time since I left in October. Got to do some trail magic with my trail family from last year. Good to be back! #trailmagic #pct2018 #pct2017 #trailfamilyreunion #ebbettspass

Throwback to last year in the sierras going over Forester Pass. This girl is excited to be getting back in the snow 😊
Essa paz é única e inexplicável!! Aquece o coração, alimenta a alma e traz a esperança de que um dia tudo vai dar certo! Essa foto foi tirada no meu último dia na Pacific Crest Trail. Preciso só fechar os olhos e me lembro exatamente de tudo que vi, ouvi e vivi nessas montanhas em Washington.
