Getting ready to pick up my trailsister from the airport!! A little more than a year ago we said goodbye not knowing when we would meet again. Today is the day! Can't wait to hug, cry and laugh. #hikertrashreunion #trailsister #PCTclassof2017 #friendsforlife

This season's last race is coming up! I haven't run a single time and only worked since @swisstrailtour 🙈 so am nowhere near as fit as I was last year after hiking the @hikingthepct BUT will hopefully have as much fun as I had back then! Bib number 2 was my lucky number and will be again! Run happy! #morenictrail #runhappy #runnersofinstagram #salomon #salomonrunning #bächlibergsport #timetoplay #eatsleeprunrepeat #pctclassof2017 #choosemountains #optoutside #outsideisfree #myhappyplace #italy 🇮🇹 #runnergirl

9th of April 2017, one day before my birthday, I stood there amazed by the surreal landscape before me. The 5th day of my PCT adventure, just after Mount Laguna. I remember it like yesterday 💚
The moment I found my PCT food kit a wave of nostalgia swept over me. Remembering all those meals in the wilderness cooked on that tiny little stove. The joy of frying hash browns in heaps of oil on that small frying pan of titanium after months of dry food. The fun moments watching Hamlet and Strider hanging our food bags in trees in the darkness. The long breaks sleeping under trees. The endless conversations. The pushing of miles. The kind help from strangers. The simplicity and serenity. The mountain tops, the deep snow, the sun cups, the water crossings, the friends I made. I will always have this experience with me and I will always long back. The only downside of long distance hiking is that accepting anything else afterwards is hard.
There's a lot I hated while long distance hiking: dirt everywhere, soiled clothing, repetitive diet. But one thing I could never get enough of was sunsets. Always spectacular and a new backdrop every night. #pct #pct2018 #pctclassof2017 #takemeback #optoutside #womenwhohike
... krásná letná California kúsok pod vrcholom Baden Powell, večer bolo chladno ale dalo sa... a ráno takáto Sibír, dole v údolí je 30 st.... ani nevieme ako sme sa zbalili a prchali dolu do tepla... v tejto oblasti majú pamätník aj 2 hikeri, ktorí ako prví chceli prejsť PCT v zime a zahynuli pri tom... niet sa čo čudovať keď ešte aj začiatkom leta na vás čaká takéto ranné prekvapenie... . #PCT #PacificCrestTrail #PCT2017 #Thruhiking #thruhiker #SlovakiaPCT #backpacking #firstslovakonpct #trekthepct #hiking #pcta #NaturePhotography #nature #optoutside #getoutstayout #getoutside #choosemountains #adventurevisuals #stayandwander #exploremore #cestounecestou #cestovani #turistika #pctclassof2017 #cestovanie #outdoorlife #outdoor #slovacinacestach #california #zpacksduplex
A year ago we stumbled into this clearing in the middle of the forest and realized we’d just finished the biggest adventure of our lives. The past year has been a tumult of emotions: missing the people and experiences that shaped us on this journey, feeling grateful for having had the opportunity, and trying to figure out how to use what we learned on trail in the rest of our lives. The bittersweet nostalgia for this experience is tempered by the knowledge that we’ve got so many more adventures ahead of us. #pacificcresttrail #pct2017 #pctclassof2017
You should’ve seen it in color. September 26 of ‘17. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017, rather than any other year. The unique circumstances we encountered with the record snow throughout portions of the High Sierra, with 198% more snow pack than average, on average. For those 250 or so miles you were forced to live in the moment. Such a humbling experience it was. Met a lot of remarkable people along the way; hikers, trail angels, to just random people willing to help. I think long distance hiking in general really helps reaffirm ones faith in the human spirit. Much love and respect fellow #pctclassof2017 ers! I’ll see some of you around. Can’t wait! #pacificcresttrail #pct #hiking #trekking #sierra #california #oregon #washington #thetrek #withguthook #trekthepct #cdt2019 #naturephotography #nature #fun
1 year ago today the most epic adventure of my life, as of now, came to an end. I hiked into Canada. I spent all summer hiking from town to town only to end up in a clear cut of forest with a weathered down monument signifying that it was all over. A day does not go by that I don’t think about this trail and everything that came with it. This trail will forever have a piece of my heart. I LOVE YOU PCT!!! Now it’s time for the next epic adventure, CDT April 2019!!! Bring on the daily endorphin rush!!! #PCTCLASSOF2017 #PCT #HIKERTRASH #ENDORPHINS #PCTNORTHERNTERMINUS #THRUHIKINGRUINEDME #CDT2019
Hikers are a bunch of weirdos, but of all the best kinds. There's something about the rawness that draws us to it. Just a bunch of modern day gypsies, whose wild ways will take us to the furthest corners of the world. What is ultimate freedom if not owing anything to anyone, and being able to put everything you need into one little pack. Knowing that your feet and fire in your heart can take you anywhere you want to go. These are my kind of people.
