DAY 55: We followed Muddy Creek road for 26 miles. A long, mundane walk with occasional beautiful scenery. It was so flat, that you could see hikers on the road in both directions even if they were 2 or 3 miles away from you. We all ended at the same campsite near a flowing spring. It was only 5pm, yet we decided that it was time to hang out. We played cards, talked, told stories and observed the scenery around us as the afternoon went by. Soon, the sun started setting and pulled everyone into its ban. It was a true spectacle. It was humbling watching all the hikers in awe of nature. These moments are what we’re out here for! #cdt2019 #thruhike #hiking #nature #hikertrash #hikingadventures
The trail in PA has been filled with rocks and mud snd mostly through a “green tunnel”. It has been a pleasant break to walk along some open agricultural fields. #pa #rocky #roughwalking #atthruhike2019 #appalachiantrail #atclassof2019 #hike #hiker #hikertrash #thruhike #getoutside #nature #adventure #notmyfavoritestate #hikeforacause #goldens #secondchances #goldenlove #grrmf #goldenretriever
Day 58 of my NW Adventure 👣 (8-15-18) BACK on the trail! Leaving the Rainy Pass Trailhead heading towards Cut Throat Pass, I was treated with the sights and sounds of waterfalls 💦 , mountain peaks 🏔, and lush forests 🌲, as I entered the Snoqualmie Mt Baker National Forest in the North Cascade Mountains on the PCT trail northbound. I got great views towards the evening time due to the moody lighting. Check out photo number 9, a reminder to always STAY SAFE out there 🧗‍♂️ #pacificcresttrail  #pct #hikingadventures  #thruhike #pctwashington  #pct2018 #trailfife #hikeon #doublewaterfall #trees #forest #mountains #skinnyhiker
Reminiscing about the finale desert stretch really hard today. 🌵🐍🦂 . . @jukebox_nero . . . . .
Bear Mountain: the lowest point on the Appalachian Trail at 124ft. Followed a steep climb back up right after you cross the bridge.
The Jump Off 🦅 —— I remember this morning so vividly. I loved this view and the ridge leading up to it. Little did I know that this was just a sneak peak of what the Smokys would bring! —— #appalachiantrail #nobo2019 #thruhike #trektheat #thruhiker #hikertrash #at2019  #georgiatomaine  #hike  #hiking  #outdoors  #optoutside  #travel  #adventure  #backpacking #wanderlust  #camping #takeahike  #atc  #choosemountains  #getoutside  #wondermore  #travel #milestogo #views #nantahalanationalforest #noc #ridge #thejumpoff

I’ve been away for a wedding and took some time off social media. I’m back and worked on a deal with an online store so you can purchase Campcraft Coffee from another store.

. AZT Day 12: 40 Miles Cornucopia Trail Jct to Whiterock Spring . Morning begins with a killer sunrise and a gentle switchbacking climb reminiscent of those along the Pacific Crest Trail. We are excited to be approaching Pine, AZ - Pine marks the point at which we leave low-elevations behind, average elevation from there forward will be above 7,000 feet (aside from the Grand Canyon of course). We begin to see a bubble of hikers today, passing 20 or more throughout the day, that’s more than we’ve seen in the previous 400 miles combine. . The trail drop significantly as it approaches the East Verde River, this first true river crossing of the trip. Dinner is had by the river as 33 miles passed by quickly. The trail north of the river is an odd and frustrating mixture of grass and porous lava rock. It’s hard to make out the trail in the dark and I insist @earlybirdhikes lead the way - her sense of direction and trail flow is far superior to mine. The lava rock is excruciating to walk over and I’m moving slow to avoid rolling my ever-floppy ankle. Our feet are swollen and throbbing as we reach Whiterock Spring, but we are happy to be within reach of Pine and settle in for the night. . . . . . . . . #arizonatrail #azt #thruhike #explorearizona #azt2019 #arizonatrail2019 #hiking #backpacking #eastverderiver #walk

Mt. Whitney Part 2/3: Path towards the Peak. The climb was done, but we still had a few kilometers ahead of us until the peak! Now, with the sun rising, we were gifted to amazing jaw dropping views of the valley and Whitney! As I hiked along the narrow trail, long drop to my left, mountain to my right, I would get glimpses of the other side of the mountain. There were “windows” in the rock walls where sunbeams would come through and that provided majestic views of the sunrise on the other side. Some parts of the trail was covered with a bit of snow, but nothing as bad as the previous climb. Finally, we reached the summit. what a feeling... The best one I had so far on the PCT and one the best in this entire 14 month journey! It was a mix of accomplishment, excitement, pure joy and peace. It is hard to put in words without sounding generic I think haha!! The thoughts that came up to my mind were what really shaped the feelings, but I prefer to keep that to myself 😬. What I can say is that I have never felt something so strong at the top of any other mountain I have ever summited! We stayed at the top for almost an hour until we turned back and started a descent that would prove to be scarier than the ascent... #pct #pct2019 #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #hiking #california #walker #thelongway #feelings #summit #peak #mountains #choosemountains #challenge #video #gopro #story #buencamino
This picture was taken one year ago today. We had the pleasure of spending a few days hiking with Pop’s(@jamesrozea ) Pops(aka Short Timer). Unfortunately, he started on some of the hottest days of the desert summer, which was hard enough on even the veteran thruhikers. Even though his thruhiking days were short lived he left his impression on plenty of the hikers he had met around him. Some who even went happily out of their way to show him support. Like Pops carrying not one, but two 35 pound backpacks for miles up steep inclines to lighten his load. Really shows the love and support that comes from the thruhiking community, even to strangers they have just met. On trail, we’re all family.

PCT Day 49, mile 673 Enroute to Kennedy Meadows. The hills are steep but the views 👌
PCT day 43: mile 652 - 665, 15th June We pop into the all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet in Ridgecrest - a real thruhiker tradition - and prepare to eat our weight in egg rolls. It turns out to be much better and healthier than you'd expect and I clean them out of brocolli, peppers and courgettes as well as an industrial amount of teriyaki chicken, fresh fruit and ice cream. We bump into other hikers as well as lovely trail angel Papa Bear who we seem to meet every week. He's just about to get off trail and camp with his family in Nevada so it won't last much longer. Amy, another local trail angel, kindly picks us up and takes us back to Walker Pass where we start at 2pm in the heat of the day. Bad timing on our part but we can't be bothered to wait it out. We wanna hike! It's a lovely but sweaty 13 miles into the evening with lovely desert views and an almost full moon to welcome us back. We camp with the fly off again and lie looking at the stars in our underwear, with warm desert air wafting through the tent. This really is what the desert is all about. #pct #pct2019 #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #pctthruhike #hiking #trail #pctig #womenwhohike #pctnobo #trekthepct #liveoutdoors #adventureisoutthere #hiketheworld #hikertrash #thetrek #werehikers #hikemore #hikerlife #rei1440project #wildernessculture #thegreatoutdoors #backpacking #optoutside #exploremore #liveyouradventure #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #pcta

Day 103. 1468.8-1488.5 Moss broke one of his trekking poles in half after a fall first thing in the morning. Looking forward to a new one in Dalton!

. AZT Day 11: 39.9 Miles Random Campsite S Four Peaks to Cornucopia Trail Jct . Smooth tread this morning quickly leads to a wide dirt road and beautiful sights. Roosevelt Lake shines in the background below as the sun rises - the Four Peaks showing off above. We don’t mind the dirt road - a chance to walk side by side. I’d sent myself a small bluetooth speaker to Roosevelt Lake and this is the perfect opportunity to jam out. We listen and sing along to our favorite playlist (thanks @rixgnar ) as our shadows dance along the road before us. These are the moments we live for. Feeling strong, silly, and free to be who we are. . The trail drops about 2,500 feet as we approach the half-way mark. It’s day 11 and while I recognize we’ve fallen behind our original timeline, I am happy and content with our effort and the fun we are having. Again we climb in the heat of the day, this time toward the Mazatzal Wilderness. Entering the wilderness around sunset we continue into the evening, setting camp on a pleasant but windy ridge. . . . . . . . . #arizonatrail #thruhike #azt #azt2019 #arizonatrail2019 #explorearizona #rooseveltlake #fourpeakswilderness #mazatzalwilderness #sunrise #hiking #backpacking
Pacific Crest Trail ↟ I’m behind on posting photos, but here’s some from our last stretch in the desert, where we experienced fun things like seeing a scorpion while night hiking, accidentally sitting on a sharp Joshua tree, and 5+ hour siestas to escape the 100f heat! • 📍Territory of the Kawaiisu people
