"A great blow it was,' he said in expensive tones, 'worthy of the mightiest warrior and truly struck upon the nose of the foe. The bright blood flew, and the enemy was dismayed and overcame. Like a hero, Garion stood over the vanquished, and, like a true hero, did not boast nor taunt his fallen opponent, but offered instead advice for quelling that crimson blood. with simple dignity then, he quit the field, but the bright~~eyed maid would not let him depart unrewarded for his valor. hastily, she pursued him and fondly clasped her snowy arms about his neck. And there she lovingly bestowed that single kiss that is the true hero's greatest reward. Her eyes flamed with admiration, and her chaste bosom heaved with newly wakened passion. But modest Garion innocently departed and tarried not to claim those other sweet rewards the gentle maid's fond demeanor so clearly offered. And thus the adventure ended with our hero tasting victory but tenderly declining victory's true compensation." ~~ David Eddings

This is what Punchbowl Falls looks like now. I'm standing on top of the rock/landslide that happened over the winter, after the fire. NOTE: AREA IS STILL CLOSED. I was there as part of a @pctassociation

Man, I am just astounded by the support people have been sending my way on here. I am hiking this trail for my own health and happiness but everyday I receive emails, messages and comments of encouragement - often from unexpected or unlikely places. Everyday, this relentless show of support changes the way I look at the world, it makes me look up and appreciate and it makes me know that I was right to stop living a life that left me feeling deeply unsatisfied. Honestly, I didn’t take to this trail so that people would notice, I started hiking the Pacific Crest Trail because I wanted to notice and keep noticing until unexpected circumstances might prevent me from doing so.
I am so happy to be able to share my life with you all. TY 😉

When I was 16 I decided to quit high school wrestling after 9 years. I had a promising future. I had enough and threw in the towel. Shortly there after I began to regret the choice. That was 20 years ago. That decision has haunted me ever since. Quitting during my AT hike never once entered my mind. Not when I had Achilles’ tendonitis in both feet, not when my tent leaked every night, not when the first mouse was in my sleeping bag with me, not when one of my closest friends was killed in a car accident. .
I was scared to come out here to thru hike and afraid I would quit and go home early. I had seen so many other veteran thru hikers throw in the towel early on. .
My first zero day on the PCT was at Big Bear Hostel 265 miles and 13 days into my hike. Coming into town I had run out of food for the second time on trail. I was extremely unhappy and home sick. I was ready to quit. After a day off to recollect my thoughts and remind myself how quitting felt I was excited to get back on trail. I was excited about hiking and my love for the trail, the community and the adventure ahead. I was back in love with thru hiking. .
My niece made me a bracelet with the most innocently perfect words on it. I love it.

Burney Falls was definitely worth the visit! It sure is nice to have something to take your thoughts away from foot pain
One of my favorite views so far on the trail. Sometimes hiking is extremely hard and painful for me, and other times it is extremely hard and painful for me but I forget about it for a minute because my eyeballs are exploding with pleasure.

Day 85- 17.6 miles (1,354.6 Miles To Go). When we hiked the Appalachian Trail we made the mistake of going into Bennington, VT for the 4th of July, and we were miserable and felt out of place and homesick. We learned our lesson. This time we opted to stay in the woods and enjoy true freedom and liberty in Lassen National Forest. We made a quick lunch stop in Belden Town, a weird outpost of sorts; then spent the rest of the day climbing uphill in the afternoon heat, and rounded out the day by playing with gigantic pine cones and enjoying the golden hour in a meadow. .
Photos: (1) A deserted Belden Town garage. (2) Random panda mural on a house in Belden. (3) They will miss us. (4) Old mill. (5) Fun with huge pine cones. (6) Meadow vibes in the golden hour. .

Saying goodbye to Shasta. You can dimly see it in the distance, but it’s been a companion this last week or so. Your eye is constantly drawn to it, a commanding presence that dominates the landscape. There’s a lot of local legends about Mount Shasta, but whatever you believe you can’t deny it’s magnetism.

"This hobbit was a very well~~to~~do hobbit, and his name was Baggins. The Bagginses had lived in the neighbourhood of The Hill for time out of mind, and people considered them very respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected: you could tell what a Baggins would say on any question without the bother of asking him. This is a story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected. He may have lost the neighbours' respect, but he gained—well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end." ~~ J.R.R. Tolkien

I survived Donner Pass yesterday with all my limbs intact. Bonus Factoid: By far the most common water filter amongst the PCT thru hiker community is the Sawyer squeeze filter. Its threads are comparable for screwing it onto certain disposable water bottles and collapsible plastic canteens. Really light and convenient. However, I learned that the occasional back flushing to clean the filter doesn’t get out all the particles which slow the flow of fresh, clean water. My got so slow it was taking 4 minutes to filter a single liter of water. I bought a new one in Tahoe. Fresh, clean water is flowing as fast as I can squeeze now. So new rule. New Sawyer filter for ever second pair of shoes I need to replace on the trail. #pct #pcta #pct2018 #pctnobo #thruhike
A felicidade de estar chegando perto da meta! No fundo o Mount Shasta e o maravilhoso por do sol do NorCal. ———•———•———
The wonderful sunset with Mount Shasta. The journey is hard and beautiful!
If this trail has taught me anything so far, it is to live simply. All I need and more to live comfortably outside is on my back. I’m sure this simple life will influence my civilized life when I get to Canada :)
Into the Cascades: Lassen Peak, last eruption 1914-1921
Subway Cave. Totally tubular my dudes.
This photo didn’t come out great, but I just wanted to share this brief moment of meeting these lovely ladies and their horses :)
