Long distance hiking by the book 101: Shoes arrived the day before departure. However, these are really special shoes. Zero drop like Altra, roomy box thought for doing 100 mile races (run forever) plus Inov8 claims that they should be incredibly durable, thanks to a new material used in the rubber (graphene) and kevlar in the uper. (not sponsored, will tell you how they do) . . #pacificcrestrail  #sobo  #canadatomexico #distancexspeed  #pct2018  #pct  #pct18 #pcta #hikerlife #pctclassof2018  #inov8  #withguthook # ultimatedirection #unlikelyhikers #leavenotrace  #ultralight  #hiking #wildernessculture  #pctig  #oakley  #hiker #hike  #hikers  #longdistancehiking #wanderlust  #continuosfootsteps # almostdone #enlightenedequipment #trekthepct

I’ve been doing my best to keep track of all the Pacific Crest Trail adventures... collecting stickers and friends along the way.

Camped out. Our sleeping bags got soaked but the shooting stars were worth it.
7/18 | PCT Day 88: I was lucky enough to finally catch a trail crew out on Trail working their asses off. It’s really a feat of engineering that the @pctassociation , so many other trail crews and groups, and countless volunteers have been able to create such a well maintained and cared for footpath. I’m grateful I had the chance to chat with these guys, even if it was just for a brief moment before they got back to work. Thanks to everything y’all do!

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. . #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #pctig #pcta #thruhike #thruhiking #handmade #handmadejewelry #rei1440project #trekthepct #thetrek #california #cali #desert #bigbear (photo credit: @twerkinthedirt )
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!
(Thread) Muir Pass photograph 3/3. This was taken on the South side of the Pass approaching the shelter. This is a shot of Helen Lake, which John Muir named after his daughter. Helen Lake flowed down into a major cascade, much of which was covered in ice and snow - this made climbing a little daunting as falling through into a gorge became a real possibility, especially since I made the approach in the late afternoon when the snow was thin and warm. Still, the peaks in this area were unbelievable. Definitely one of my favorite days in the Sierras. • • • • #hikertrash #outbound #trekthePCT #wildnout #thruhike #pctig #natgeotravel #mountainlife #trailblazers #adventurecalling #keepitwild #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #earthpix #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #staywild #wildcalifornia #backcountry #neverstopexploring #landscape #splendid_earth #optoutside #hikingtheglobe #pct
(Thread) Muir Pass photograph 2/3. Coming down from the Pass was a huge challenge due to the snow melt - the water washed away the trail, making the 5 mile stretch down into Evolution Lake a soaking wet game of leap frog from patch to patch. Still, this made for one of my favorite passes so far. • • • • #hikertrash #outbound #trekthePCT #wildnout #thruhike #pctig #natgeotravel #mountainlife #trailblazers #adventurecalling #keepitwild #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #earthpix #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #staywild #wildcalifornia #backcountry #neverstopexploring #landscape #splendid_earth #optoutside #hikingtheglobe #pct
Muir Pass photograph 1/3. This is the famous Muir Shelter, which was put there in 1931 by the Sierra Club as an emergency shelter for mountaineers in case of bad weather or lightning. Made an excellent stop for some food and warmth, and a fantastic view of the Pass! • • • • #earthpix #hikertrash #outbound #trekthePCT #wildnout #thruhike #pctig #natgeotravel #mountainlife #trailblazers #adventurecalling #keepitwild #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #earthpix #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #staywild #wildcalifornia #backcountry #neverstopexploring #landscape #splendid_earth #optoutside #hikingtheglobe #pct #pct2018 #muirpass #sierranevada #mountainrange

Tagged the 1/2 way marker on Monday. It’s been a series of long,hot big mileage days. I’m ready to get out of California & kick some Oregon rocks for a lil bit! #thetrek #trekthepct #mountains #explore #adventure #exploreeverything #rei1440project #letsgocamping #everytrailconnects #disableyourlimits
Burney Falls was definitely worth the visit! It sure is nice to have something to take your thoughts away from foot pain
Halfway, baby!!! I am officially closer to Canada than I am to Mexico! Let’s do this all again!

So, I have a little story behind (pun intended) why getting to Butt Mountain was a seriously surreal moment. Five years ago, when I was working at Disneyland, my favorite location to work was the Challenge Trail. The Challenge Trail is an area based on Northern California, where I presently find myself. In the area there was a treehouse with a map of NorCal. On the map was Butt Mountain. Each time I was there I would go into the treehouse, look at the map, and find Butt Mountain. I did it so much that I actually instagramed a picture (see photo #2 ). I always told myself that someday I’d go and find this elusive and magical place. The PCT wasn’t even a twinkle in my eye at this point. Fast forward five years, and I discovered that the PCT goes right through Butt Mountain and my long lost dream was accomplished today! #buttmountain #pct #pacificcresttrail #pct2018 #thruhike #thruhiker #thruhiking #hike #hiker #hiking #hikertrash #hikertrashforlife #thetrek #trekthepct #pcta #pctassociation #getoutside #vlog #blogger #blog #vlogger #ggg #california #norcal
Day 10: It's all fine. Everything is fine. It's fine. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ When I wake up this morning and remember all the snow and challenging navigation ahead, I feel immediately defeated. I mope around as I pack up, but once my microspikes are on I give myself a little pep talk. "It's all fine," I say confidently. "Everything is fine. You're fine. IT'S FINE." And then, well, and then I hike. It takes a full hour to cover the first 1.8 snowy miles to the lake, but when I get there and find The King still packing up his stuff I'm elated. A friend! My friend! I won't be alone all day after all! It's an exhausting 21 miles though, up and down, trudging through snow and over precarious downed trees, crawling on our hands and knees to cross a particularly dicey ridge-edge section of snow. By the time we reach the summit of Grizzly Peak my energy has completely leached out, and I'm unprepared for the swarms of mosquitos that suddenly appear. The King is cursing and swatting his hands around frantically, looking at me like, "Why are there always so many obstacles in the two miles before we get to camp?? Why are we always so fucked by the end of the day?" And it's true, we're always wrecked as hell by the time we stop and today isn't any different. We make it to Janus Lake and I collapse at the first flat spot, quickly pitching my tent, covering myself in bug spray, and preparing to remove my shoes. They've been wet for three days now and it smells like something died inside of them - not to mention how pale, wrinkled, and tender my feet are. They honestly look like zombie corpse feet at this point, like maybe these feet are the thing that's died in my shoes. God, I'm disgusting. That's all I can think as I get into my tent and take an inventory of my body: zombie feet, blisters, cuts, bruises, filthy skin, dried blood, throbbing knees and shins. What is even happening to me right now? How quickly can I hike into town tomorrow? Will showering cure everything? Will the restaurant have onion rings? "Shhh, it's all fine," I tell myself again. "Everything is fine. You're fine. IT'S FIIIIIIIINE."
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.
“If you don’t break your ropes while you’re alive, do you think ghosts will do it after?” -Kabir . . . 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.

Unfortunately, I am taking a pause on the Sierra High Route and going back on the PCT with plans to come back and finish the leftover 120 miles out of 195. After much contemplation, I'm writing this sitting on the ground while thunder rolls all around me. Because of the thunder storms, I can't do this safely and in a timely fashion to still finish the pct with my friends. See you later, you beautiful, moody, stupid difficult route. I'll still be gunning for you. I'll be updating photos and blogs detailing my adventures on the section I have done soon! #PCT1968 #pct2018 #ospreypacks #pctig #salomon #PacificCrestTrail #pct #FindYourTrail #P3Hikers #PCTA #REI #trailingadventures #trekthepct #rei1140project #wanderlust #optoutside #naturporn #takeahike #thetrek #thruhike #zpacks #natgeo #letsgoforawalk #trailchat #bpmag #takemebackpacking #bpgoals2018 #NationalParkGeek #exped @pctassociation   @ospreypacks @salomon

Tonight it’s going back on trail again and I just feel like WOHOOOO! After nearly one week of recovering in Dunsmuir, my wish to be out there on the PCT in the wild and in the nature is immense! Yey!! I have a lot of energy and i think my stomach got better too. Let’s see how he likes trail food 😅 this pic was taken on top of Mt Whitney aaaages ago 🙃 still proud and so happy that I have done it! It was an awesome trip up there and the reward was fulfillment, joy, happiness, a lot of adrenaline and just smiling faces everywhere ☺️ #trekthepct #pct #pctig #pacificcresttrail #pct2018 #hiking #outdoor #laufenmusstduselbst #neuehorizonte #mountwhitney #adventure

It’s an exposed 99 degrees in Northern California right now and all I can think of is high alpine lakes of the Sierra Nevada, how far the closest swimming hole is, and people who think climate change isn’t real... #protectpublicland #norcal #sierranevada #pct2018 #thruhike #trekthepct #pcta

What do you think of this "Two years ago we took the same photo...love this place...wish we didn't have to eat and run." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • A few days ago we left Cascade Locks with full bellies and after some wonderful time spent in this great trail town. • • • We got to catch up with @julesinthegorge and even got to try the hiker trash burgers! • • • Unfortunately we had to leave the next morning and start into Washington as our end date on the PCT is not as flexible as others...we have to get to the CDT fairly quickly afterwards. • • • Oregon came and went...the mosquitoes were the one constant. We averaged over 40 miles a day through the state, boy was it tiring with the hungry insects • • • Though... I'm sitting at Whites Pass and there are probably a few hundred outside right now so it hasn't changed much. • • • Much love to the great folks in Oregon who help hikers out and are a part of that family every year. • • • As we continue north it's with the knowledge that there are good people out there and the trail provides even in the darkest of times. • • • Thanks for following along, I promise to update hiker profiles for humansofthepct soon. • • • Until then stay hiking and HappyTrails • • • #PCT2018 #PCT #pacificcresttrail #pctstory #pctclassof2018 #pctig #trekthepct #pcta #asianamerican #thrupack #roscoeoutdoor #coalatree #explorer #backpacker #adventures #HongKong #mexicotocanada #wander #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #escape #travels #yolo #smile #love #8000milesto8000smiles #oregon Via :@hikingprodigy Follow me : @Hiking_lover_Martinez

Day 70 Mile 1657| made it to Seiad Valley today, the last town in California. I'm only 36 miles from the Oregon border but unfortunately there is a fire very close to the trail just past the border in Oregon that just recently closed the trail. Unfortunately after weighing my options the best choice seems to be to hitch around the closure and up to Ashland. So far I have maintained a continuous footpath from Mexico to here, however this will be the first break in the footpath. The purist in me wants to roadwalk around as I did on other sections of the trail, but it would be a 62 mile road walk on windy roads and then on i5 so that isn't really an option. Oh well, this section of the trail isn't far from home so I can always come back and do it another year when it reopens.its a bit anticlimactic hitching into Oregon after walking for ten weeks but I am excited to enter a new state nonetheless.

7/18 | PCT Day 88: Amidst a 35 mile day out of Etna, I began to notice an immense amount of smoke filling the valley below the ridge I was hiking. As the day went on, the smoke got thicker, setting the end of the day up for a beautiful sunset at the expense of so much life out here; quite sad when I really think about it. It seems that fire season is in full swing here near the CA/OR Border. I’m hoping that none of the PCT is affected and that everyone is staying safe. Shot on the @sonyalpha / #sonya7ii . #pct2018

Temps on trail have been reaching 100 lately, so we’ve went back to shade hopping like we did in the desert. I had no clue NorCal got so hot, but the views have made up for it. Grabbed this phone picture from tonight’s campsite!
BURNEY FALLS! Height of Falls: 129 ft. Depth of Pool: 22 ft. 100 MILLION GALLONS! #spicemanhikes #pct2018 #trekthepct #optoutside
At this point out here, it’s no longer the physical part of it, but now, the mental game. 30+ days no longer scare me, or hurt me, but rather excited me for how strong I’ve become! The views certainly don’t come easy and the heat is no joke... in which NO ONE warned us that NorCal is hotter than the desert. Enough said, I can’t wait to leave Cali behind in 3 short days ✌🏼#pct2018 #trekthepct #thruhike #getmeoutofhere #california #adventure #hikerlife

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.
Here is a little snippet of my time in the desert, 702 miles worth, on the Pacific Crest Trail. I hear a lot of negative comments about the desert that it’s ugly, miserable, or that it equals “death”. And although there are extremely harsh traits about the desert, I enjoyed it so much. The beauty was unlike anything I have ever seen before, and it made me grow so much as not only a hiker, but a human being as well. I had to overcome so many obstacles and I am thankful for them now. The full video is linked in my bio. I would love for you to check it out and share it!! I hope the desert isn’t as intimidating to those hoping to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in the future as others make it out to be. Yes there are many challenges and very difficult times, but the beauty outweighs it all. You’ll see.

All of the next week it’s still more than 40 degrees in Northern California. Night hiking is definitely an option. Sometimes you just wish to walk into a nice, cooling rain shower, like I did in the Sierra the day before I climbed Whitney. #trekthepct #pct #pacificcresttrail #hiking #pct2018 #hikertrash #sierranevada #outdoor #hiking
Passed the halfway point earlier today. Only 1,325 miles left.
It’s been a year and I still can’t get enough of Washington. I can’t wait to go back.
