Made it to Mammoth! The Sierras have been a basket of emotions throughout the week, but the landscape constantly has been an highlight. Resupply here and onwards to Yosemite, one of the places I have always wanted to go in my life. #believinginbucketlists #pctig
After 77 days and 1153 miles on trail my legs aren’t having it anymore. Hiking has become too painful and I don’t want to risk permanent injury or having the experience become a miserable one. So my hike ends at Donner Pass, but it’s been an incredible experience and I’m grateful to all the folks I met who hiked with, camped with, helped, and supported me. I don’t have pictures of everyone that I would include in those categories but this type of trip is made by the relationships developed, and I’m grateful for the folks I got to know along the way. Good luck to everyone still charging towards Canada. #pct2018 #pctig #foxfamily
K- PCT Day 85 complete! Mother Nature really put on a show today! The day started in a haze which has drifted north from the Yosemite fire, casting an awesome orange glow on everything. I assume it also contributed to an amazing sunset that just got better and better as I hiked. Oh and I passed Anderson Peak - obviously named for me. 28.6mi (48.0km).
PCT Day 54: Selden pass, one of the last passes in the Sierra.
Memorable for two reasons: endless attacks by bloodthirsty mosquitoes and clouds! Finally some beautiful fluffy white clouds in the sky.
Never knew I would miss clouds this much.

Just another day on the trail...not a day goes by that I am not grateful to be on this trail, grateful that my body is capable to keep hiking, grateful that I get to wake up everyday to see sights like this. #pacificcresttrail #pctig #pct2018 #thruhike

Mosquitomageddon continues 😳
🍹🍺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!
Oregon is mostly a green tunnel, but stretches like this are HOT!
Fires in Yosemite making everything smokey and delicious on the eyes.
There has been a lot of bad mojo coming from hikers lately. We are at that point where we are just passing halfway and it can seem daunting to have to do that same amount all over again causing it to seem like work. But it's always been like that for me. It's never been easy and ive always had that thought in the back of my head but to be passionate about something means how willing are you are going suffer for that passion. personally ive been having a blast and clearly willing to suffer a good amount for this trail . The Sierras were amazing and that was enough for a lot of hikers to call it quits. But every part of this trail has something to offer unique in its own way. It's what you make it. Small towns are a blast with the right company. Its not all about miles those seem to fall quicjly these days. 25s are no problem. Right now it's a 100 + but when the trail provides, sometimes that means you take advantage of the moment. That moment may be a river with a thirty rack before a 13 mile 6000 foot climb
