Cartwheels for 2,000 miles! My video from this day on trail is up and linked in my bio. I would love for you to check it out! This day really made me love my body. 2,000 miles!?!??? I don’t even like flying 2,000 miles. 😂
White Pass to Snoqualmie Pass, 2393 miles 🍄 #pct2018 #pct #pcta

I just got this awesome adventure journal from @woodchuckusa ! The timing could not be more perfect because I'm in the middle of planning my biggest adventure yet! Next July I'm going to backpack solo from the Washington/Oregon border up to the border of Washington & Canada! I'm excited & scared and super impatient for July to hurry up and get here!!!

Darkly, deeply, beautifully blue 🌊
I wake up early for likes.
Again, I can’t get over the desert views. Now, the sand in my shoes is another story. I have new kicks, hole-free, waiting for me in our next town a day or two away! . . . . . #pct2018 #pctsobo #pctsobo2018 #pacificcresttrail #pcta #hikertrash #thruhike #lash #vasquezrocks #topoathletic #darntough #movebetternaturally #sandinmyshoes #holesinmysocks #newshoes #newsocks #aguadulce #wrightwood #cajonpass #santaanawind #angelesnationalforest #clouds #socal #leavenotrace 📸: @bee.jonesie
Got to get up early to enjoy the sunrise. When was the last time you took the time to enjoy the first few hours of a new day? Get up, get outside and be adventurous this weekend. Best. #seattle #pct #thruhiker #pctclassof2018 #pcta #hikertrash #thruhike #thegroundskeepers #granitegear #altrarunning #explorethespace #backpacking #getoutside #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #intothewild #mountainlifestyle #simplyadventure #vanlife #themountainsarecalling #womenwhoexplore #highfives #salishsea #pugetsound
After an epic sunrise atop Mount Baden-Powell, I’ve made my way down the mountain into the town of Wrightwood for a day of R&R! www.notabadplacetopee.com #pctyoyo
PCT #tbt - the smoke was brutal but it made for some gorgeous sunsets. This was one of my favorite campsites on trail, just me and the view. #pct2018 #pct #pctig #pcta #womenwhohike #sunsets #hiking #thruhike #pacificcresttrail #thetrek #getoutdoors #nofilter

PCT Day 52 Miles 631 Maybe the coldest night on trail so far. Slept in the fetal position most of the night. Woke up with bits of frost on the ground and in the tent. Hiked windy ridges for breakfast along the Tahoe Rim Trail. Saw some Sobos from hundreds of miles back, a fun reunion. Ate 10 protein bars today, a new best. Went swimming after sunset as we got into camp, very cold and not really worth the effort. Woke up at 2 am with hunger pains, scarfed my 11 bar and went back to my cold mat. #PCT #PCTig #PCTA #PCTSobo #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2018 #TahoeRimTrail #LakeTahoe
PCT Day 51 Mike 614 Hiked a snowboard run at Squaw Valley, Tahoe. I noticed immediately that it smelled like Tahoe. Recently added a heavy and mandatory Bearcan to our pack for our food. While hiking we saw a bunch of dads and boys driving remote control rock crawlers on trail. #PCT #PCTig #PCTA #PCTSobo #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2018
By this point I was jamming out pretty hard on the way up to Mt. Whitney. 😍🎸🤘
PCT Day 50 Mile 600 Hiked into Lake Tahoe after a visit home to see family and eat too many doughnuts and burgers. Each mountain face we hiked by was full of rock climbers. It was exciting to make it to the foothills to the Sierra before the snows. The beginning of fall is evident by the shorter days. It made for great star watching. #PCT #PCTig #PCTA #PCTSobo #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2018
PCT Day 47 Finished hiking the Hat Creek Rim Trail. It was hot, exposed, dry with nice views and flat trail. Started the hike at 3:45 am to avoid some of the hottest hours of the day. Few snakes, lots of lizards and thorns. In the afternoon we took a side trail to a lava tunnel. It was refreshingly cold underground. We stopped by a small trail town for the night. #PCT #PCTig #PCTA #PCTSobo #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2018
O melhor da nossa jornada foram as pessoas que cruzaram nosso caminho. O mais incrível é que o caminho acabou e não paramos de conhecer pessoas maravilhosas. Até agora falamos sobre a jornada pela #pacificcresttrail no @vivenciaoutdoor em Floripa e no @clubealpinopaulista em SP. Dois eventos que vamos nos lembrar por muito tempo. Que vibe! 😍😍😍 Nossos próximos encontros serão no domingo la na @adventuresfair , em SP, e na próxima terça lá no @clubeexcursionistalight lá no Rio. Paulistas e cariocas, apareçam lá pra bater um papo com a gente. ****************************** People, the best of the journey!!! Miss you darling @laurenaudreana
Towards the end of my thru hike I was really done I mean views were incredible but I was exhausted mentally, physically and all I wanted to do at that time wasto get to the monument at the Canadian border ... At that time what had puzzled me the most, was that I've met a handful of people that had hiked the PCT already and this was their second or even third time. I thought to myself "Why on earth someone that is half sane would want to have this intense experience again?" A month later, after I've rested... I've looked at my pictures from the trail and wondered ... "when was the application window for the PCT again?

Apparently, according to my calculations and google, you take roughly 5,300,000 steps on average to walk the 2,650 miles of the PCT. *disclaimer: this does not include alt. routes, town stops, pee/poop breaks, or walking the wrong way. **another disclaimer: I am not a mathematician. #darntough ___________________________________________________ #thruhikesyndicate #adventureanywhere #wellhiked #homeiswhereyoustakeit #ospreypacks #unruletheoutdoors #keepitsimple #stayandwander #explore #getoutside #optoutside #forceofnature #keepitwild #pct2018 #trail #findyourpeak #liveoutdoors #wanderlist #getlost #thruhikers #hikertrash #PCT #pcta #thruhike #shemovesmountains #womenwhohike #asdt #sheexplores #sweatydirtyhappy
Day 85: Mile 1068 ————————— Though we hiked a few miles today, I spent most of it on the porch of the Kennedy Meadows General Store with this little furball and all of her puppy friends. It was heaven 😻 We were overjoyed that the store was open, having feared that we were too late in the season, and were ecstatic when picking up our overstuffed resupply box. We did laundry and showered in between snacks, all the while chatting with a great group of sobo hobos like us. Each of us was thrilled to be out of the cold. Our packs now smell of soap rather than sweat, though we know that won’t last long as we head into the hot sandy desert. 30 miles water carries await us tomorrow, but tonight we sleep near a muddy, cow trampled creek with all the silty water we can stomach. If not for this heavy water carry, I might have been tempted to put this kitten and a puppy or four in my pack... #kittenthief #towndays #pct #pcta #andshesdopetoo #kennedymeadows #outofthesierra
It’s a wonderful thing to freely be able to be ME. The most natural physically I have ever been, no cares about what I look like, and being surrounded by others who feel the same. Hoping to really keep this mentally back in a society where all of that is so hard to do these days it seems. The video from this day is up on my YouTube channel, so make sure to go check it out! As always, thanks for the love!!
I am so happy that I get to spend my six month trailaversary with Ace today. It is probably my last full day on trail. I am taking the time to really soak it all in a enjoy these last few miles and steps.
It’s waterfront exploration week at DownCity Design! Our stop today was at the Providence Community Boating Center with our Design Build crew from PCTA. We can’t wait to dive into this design challenge! @pvdschools @ridepted #pcta #21cclc #stem #steam #reach #cbc #communityboating
2 September I was in Washington. I remember having a difficult morning. I hated the rocks on the path and was swearing while hiking up. I took a break, I took a breath and changed my mood. I realised once more how fucking lucky I was. I also realised that soon it all would be over. I decided to take it slow, put my chin up and enjoy the rest of the day.. and I did ❤ A month ago on the 16th I finished my journey on the PCT. This video is a random day of that journey. There are still no words to really describe how it was. The simple question of how was it? Is still the hardest to answer. For now I know that the PCT is in my heart, that I changed as a person and that this feeling deep inside of me is what I am going to hold on to. No words, just this deep feeling of happiness and all the other stuff.. #pct2018 #pct #hiking #thruhike #outdoors #womenempowerment #womenempoweringwomen #pcta #nature
I've been so busy... lazy? ?? so far that I've not published any pictures since I finished my thru hike. Here is a picture of the first day and 1 when I crossed the border of Canada 4 months later. Some pics of the Pct would follow the next few days... weeks... months 😁 never? #pct2018 # #pct # #pacific cresttrail # #pctclassof2018 # #usa # #hike # #pcthiker # #trailangel # #pcta # #jmt # #johnmuir # #backpacking # #nationalpark # #mountainlife # #wild # #hiking # #trekking # #randonnée # #california # #oregon # #washington # #nature # #voyage #
On a recent adventure along the Oregon coast I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite Breweries. Fort George in Astoria, Oregon is most excellent and really quite unique. 30 Barrel | Cask Aged - all wonderful. On this stop I tried the Seafood Chowder with Albacore Tuna, Alaska Cod, Oregon Shrimp, Razor Clams and Applwood Bacon - it was flat out delicious. 🐢 #pct #thruhiker #pctclassof2018 #pcta #hikertrash #thruhike #thegroundskeepers #granitegear #altrarunning #explorethespace #backpacking #getoutside #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #intothewild #mountainlifestyle #simplyadventure #vanlife #themountainsarecalling #womenwhoexplore #highfives
I don’t know if there is anything better than a sunny day in Washington.
Sometimes you need a break and an actual bed to sleep in. However, I wasn't planning on taking one in South Lake Tahoe. After hiking a couple of miles to the trailhead in the morning, I got a ride with a few others towards town. Big Feet and myself found a Starbucks to enjoy a coffee and a connection to the outside world. For the first time in 10 days I was online, but it disappointed me.. maybe it just didn't give me the comfort and company I needed. So I was actually pretty set on hitching back to the trail. But Big Feet had gotten in contact with a trail angel, who were hosting hikers. I was suddenly offered a bed and a bath. It was too good to turn down. The trail angel turned out to be a couple named John and Kathy, who in their amazing generosity, where offering us lunch, dinner, a bed, a shower and laundry. They were from San Francisco and were spending the summer in Tahoe. At dinner we were all telling stories and laughing. This was the comfort and company I was looking for. Day 10: 6 miles (Total: 185 miles) #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail2018 #pct #pcta #takeahike #hike #hikertrash #southlaketahoe #california #trailangels

It was three years ago on this day that we finished the trail. This year, my new book, The Trail Provides, a thru-hiking memoir of stories and lessons learned along the Pacific Crest Trail, is now available on Amazon! Purchase the book today via my blog (link in bio!). . I have lots to share with you here. If you want a little taste of the book, this week’s Thinking with David podcast episode is a reading of Chapter One! I’m no professional voice actor, but I had fun doing it. You’ll find the links to this podcast episode also on my blog. If you enjoy the listen, consider picking up the book :) . Next, if you visit my blog and navigate to the book's product page, you’ll find all sorts of fun content relating to my trail experience including more photos, podcast episodes, and a link to my “unboxing” video of the first book. . If you’re wondering how you can support this project in this present moment, buy the book. :) Then read it. Then review it. Otherwise, you can add the book on Goodreads, share it with others on social media, or tell your loved ones. Any help is much appreciated for indie authors like myself. . This was a long and worthwhile journey for me and the path has only just begun. There's a lot I could say here about all that has happened to allow this to happen, but I think the book speaks for itself. Inside those pages is where you'll find the necessary acknowledgments, stories, lessons learned, and hopefully, some laughs and inspiration along the way. . I'm excited to share this with you. Who knows how it will turn out, but that's only thinking at the superficial level. I've discovered that you never really know who might be inspired by you, or what sort of an effect you have on the world, not just through creating, but in our simple day-to-day interactions with ourselves and others. I dedicate this book to you -- the seeker, soul-searcher, and pilgrim. May we continue to pursue our unique paths and be grateful for every step along the way. Thanks for your support, and wishing you well today. . Love, David . PS - Stay tuned for a much more emotional blog post about everything later this week. For now, check out the book! 👣🏜🏔🏕🗺🧗‍♂️✨📚

Did you know that PCTA’s saw teams keep up with windfall and fire-damaged trees in wilderness areas using very sharp, vintage crosscut saws? Very cool. ______________________________ Photo taken in the Mt. Hood National Forest, Clackamas River Ranger District by PCTA volunteer photographer, Terry Hill. #TrailWorkTuesday
I have been enjoying the desert a lot more than I had anticipated. These chilly mornings and amazing views got me like... 😍 We are currently in Wrightwood enjoying everything it has to offer! Oh, and I got new socks!

The days are short so I’m catching every sunset. I am not catching sunrise because it is below freezing until 8-9 am 😳 I’ve been failing at getting up early but I’m going to try to get better at that.
Ladies and gentlemen, Bobby Lakes!

These markers are huge! Some of the biggest ones I have seen on trail. I am getting closer to home every day.
