ORSM19 Top Picks: Just when you thought @bigagnes_ couldn’t have any more tricks up their sleeves, they’ve gone and upgraded one of our fave tents with a new patio! Meet the Copper Spur HVUL!
I got into photography to capture the beauty of the outdoors. I stay in photography because I get to capture once in a lifetime moments like this. Big Congratulations goes out to @lesleefrad and Jordan!!
@amclaugh17 and I finished our second state and first official month on the AT yesterday! We celebrated with the most amazing cinnamon raisin, fried egg, apple butter, and sausage breakfast sandwich from Apple Pie Bakery (and later a bbq cheddar bacon melt and garden salad...our third time eating there in 24 hours 😏). Hello New Jersey! Hopefully goodbye rocks in less than a week 🤞🏼#appalachiantrail #thruhiking #pleasenomorerocks
Sandy adventures in the dunes 😊
I’ve been slacking big time on posting. Honestly, the past few days have been exhausting and all I’ve done (or wanted to do) is sleep. Right now I’m on Doxycycline for possible Lyme Disease or whatever Tick-Borne Illness I have. Currently having various tests done for the illnesses that can be found along the east coast. I was originally going to be hiking a PA section of the AT this week with one of my tramily members, but that’s been shot to shit. Not having the energy to even get up and grocery shop is brutal. Basically, this last week has been filled with 90% sleep. From now on, I’m making sure to use @sawyerproducts Permethrin as a first line of defence, because I don’t want to deal with this situation ever again. If you have good movie or tv show recommendations, feel free to comment below. I might fall asleep within 20 mins but 🤷🏻‍♀️ it’ll be nice background music.

Mini-update time! . After much deliberation, I have decided to continue my hike from the Canadian border south. I am at approximately 900 miles hiked thus far! . Reasons primarily being that the hike I am desiring to hike is more complimented by a plan with less mountaineering (even though I LOVE mountaineering). When I eventually reach Colorado, I will get to hike the high route, and do so in a more efficient (and comfortable...) way to allow me to finish before my school deadline. . I must unfortunately depart from very good trail family members, as they continue to brave the snowy alpine of Colorado. I am so excited that I have completed the “boring” sections of the CDT, leaving Glacier, Yellowstone, Wind River range, Rockies, and finally finishing with the San Juan’s. . There is much left in store, and I am stoked to get back on the ol’ dusty trail and rock some steady miles with good friends. I just had an incredible week of family reunion, sickness, good beer and food, and rest. Thank you all who have supported me with your warm wishes and prayers, and those who have contributed to my fundraiser for @haitibiblemission ! . #cdt2019 #cdtc #embracethebrutality #trekthecdt #hikertrash #thruhike #thruhiking #backpacking #optoutside #hike #outdoors #colorado #bravethecdt #triplecrown #ultralight #colorado #takelessdomore #withguthook #katabatic #palante #hyperlitemountaingear #hyoh #wyoming
A couple indulgent zero days gave me some good time to reflect on the last few weeks of meandering up New Mexico. I put it down on paper. Or the internet. Same same - link in bio (blog features hairy legs and wolves)
who knew your pack’s rain cover could double as a parachute? 🤯 (swipe) look, i’m just here to give you guys my expertise outdoor advice 🤷🏻‍♀️
Mile 2106.9: Sandy River Water Crossing . I don’t care how big or small they are, water crossings will always be my number one fear along the PCT. . Sandy River was quite the flowing river. It took a little route finding and cairn locating to get to the safest and driest place to cross, which were at these two logs. . Only one of us made it across with dry shoes and socks. Any guesses on who? 🤪 . . . . . #pct2019 #PCTClassof2019 #pcthiker #PacificCrestTrail #P3Hikers #hike #thruhike #thruhiker #thruhiking #hikethepct #HikingAdventures #TakeAHike #HikeMore #HikingFun #HikerTrash #OptOutside #OspreyPacks #withGuthook #TheHungryHiker #WildAtHeart
Last hikers of the day “Late Start” and “Red Bird”. I was given the trail angel name “Butter Cup” because of all the Reese’s peanut butter cups I brought. I saw these two and pulled over “hey want a ride?” “Oh my god yes thank you so much”. “I’ve got cold drinks and snacks in a cooler in the back of my truck”. No words were spoken a blissful glow permeated the well earned sweat and dirt that adorned their faces because on trail you earn that sweat and dirt. I wouldn’t trade the look on their faces for a bag of money. See you two at lone pine. #optoutside #pct2019 #nature #hiking #thruhiking #dirtbag #explore #adventure #payitforward #pcta #mountainvibes #wanderlust
It’s funny how quickly you adapt (back) to trail life. It’s almost muscle memory, minus adequate trail legs. Those you have to earn. But the small things like eating your Oreos before dinner so you don’t have to wait for the chocolate remains to fade from you molars. Or efficiently taking off your puffy once you get warmed up in the morning without ever taking your pack off. Or even meeting someone new and going from strangers to friends in the span of enjoying a milkshake. Your body remembers trail. Your mind remembers the simplicity. You remember how to balance the day-to-day trifles while getting in the daily mileage. It’s amazing really- it’s amazing how easy it is to so quickly shed your societal shell and bloom again from the dirt. To become connected, not through the digital aches and pains of likes and comments, but truly connected to the space you and your pack fill. You can find me walking, pack on my back with mud-caked and bug bitten legs. I remember this and I’m happy to be back. #trailingthought #ventureready #wellhiked #salomonsquad #timetoplay #sheexplores #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #hikingwithdogs #exploretocreate #traillove #hikelife #hikemore #seekthetrails #trektheat #thetrek #AT2019 #thruhike #thruhiking #thruhiker #atsobo #lighterpackclub #salomonwmn #salomonsole
How I'm feeling because I'm really focusing on planning my backpacking/thru hiking trips and primitive survival courses out west when I'm in grad school. I am ready to get my off grid sustainable shiz on and connect with the earth in the ultimate way. Humanity has lost sight of what is real and it is hard to find clarity in the hustle and bustle of society 🌌 #backpacking #thruhiking #travel #freespirit #wanderlust #nature #landscape #liveyouradventure #optoutside #mountains #dunes #kelso #mojave #desert #granite #sand #geology #hippie #southwest #california #earth #sustainability #primitive #offgrid #west
Thank you Sandra so much for this amazing @earth.bands ! I am totally in love with it especially since it represents my favourite mountain Shasta. It's very nice to have a connection to the mountain I am currently hiking around, during my thru hike. #pct #pct2019 #pctclassof2019 #thruhike #thruhiking #girlswhohike #california #backpacking #pacificcresttrail #mountshasta #hiking #hikeyourownhike #wilderness #gooutdoors #outdoors #liveoutdoors
LA Aqueduct at sunrise. A long, waterless stretch in the desert of southern California, the aqueduct is often hiked at night. After getting vortexed in the Twilight Zone that was Hikertown, we left at 3am to try and cover as many miles as possible before the sun became unbearable. Only a small section of the pipe is actually visible while the majority is buried and under concrete, which is not the most pleasant to hike on. We were all excited and a little anxious about this section. It really was beautiful in its own way. #pct #pct2019 #pacificcresttrail #hikertrash #thruhiking #backpacking #thruhike #hikersofinstagram #womenwhohike #hikelikeawoman #windfarm #sunrise #socal #hiking
[New!] AMBASSADOR'S リズ・トーマスのハイキング・アズ・ア・ウーマン#20 / より長くハイキングするための方法(後編) ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ 前編はおもに概論的な内容でしたが、今回の後編では、栄養の取り方、リカバリーの方法、トレーニング方法など、より具体的で実践的な方法を紹介します。 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ 長い距離を歩けるようになるためのTIPSが満載ですが、リズはこう言います。 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ 「より長い距離をハイキングすることは、決して他のハイカーよりも優れていることを誇示するものではありません。自慢するためのものでもありません。すべては、あなたのハイキングの選択肢を広げることなのです」 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ 大事なのは長く歩くこと自体ではなく、それによって得られるハイキングの可能性や自由度なのです。 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ ハイキングをより楽しむためのツールとして、この記事を参考にしてもらえればと思います。 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ ※詳細は @thetrailsmag のリンクからご覧ください。 ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ #LizThomas #appalachiantrail #fastestknowntime #longdistancehiking #thruhike #thruhiking #thetrailsmag #ロングディスタンスハイキング #ロングトレイル #トレイルズ
Day 90📍1665.7/2192, VT ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. Nearly 100 years ago, Benton MacKaye stood atop of this mountain and envisioned a footpath encompassing the crest of Appalachia. He would later propose the official creation of this Appalachian Trail. ⛰ It would be decades later for an individual to complete a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. Almost a century later, here I am attempting my thru hike. Here I am, witnessing the same view that inspired the creation of the Appalachian Trail. I feel honored to be here, in this moment! 😁 The pic of me pretending to hike into the distance is from the summit of Bromley Mountain, had to go up a ski slope to get there! Hope y’all enjoy the photos from today, ‘‘twas a fun one! ☺️ 6/17/2019) 🌲♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . . #TrekTheAT #TheTrek #HikeTheAT #AppalachianTrail #AT2019 #ATClassOf2019 #hiking #thruhiking #thruhike #goatworthy #optoutside #rei #AdventureOn #granitegear #TheGroundsKeepers #ForceofNature #TrekkingToes #rei1440project #LeaveNoTrace #LNT #leaveitbetter #backpacking

Spent 5 days hiking in the Shenandoahs and had an amazing time doing so. Came across more wildlife than I’ve ever encountered in a weeks span, including one of the biggest black bears I’ve ever seen. Just saying I saw a bear four days in a row!! Shared soo much laughter with some great friends! Looking forward to the upcoming weeks and finally making it out of Virginia. #backpacking #at2019 #appalachiantrail2019 #thruhiking #hikertrash #virginia #virginiaisbeautiful #shenandoah #bears #hawksofinstagram #feelinggoodtoday #views
You’re not a thru hiker until you walk face first into a cobweb and the spider lands directly in your mouth. #at2019 #appalachiantrail #virginiaisforlovers #pixiecut
