Congratulations to These 2016 Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hikers (10.4.16 Edition)

Oh. Snap.  As you probably know, we do our best ’round these parts to shine a spotlight on the incredible accomplishment of our AT friends. We thought it’s time to do the same for those out West.  Two thousand six hundred and sixty miles through desert, 13,000 ft passes, volcanoes, old growth forests, and glaciers is deserving of recognition.

If you’ve completed your thru-hike, send us your photos from Manning Park  (or Campo for our SOBOs).  Email us your photos here and be sure to include your Trail Name and completion date.

Without further ado, congratulations to…
