This Week’s Top Instagram Posts from the #PacificCrestTrail
Thru-hiking season is in full throttle on the #PCT! And there are some great photos floating around thanks to all the hikers out there! Unfortunately, if you are reading this right now, you probably aren’t out on the trail (thanks for reading if you are!). Good news, this is the next best thing!
If you’d like to be featured, we search Instagram for great photos with the hashtag #PacificCrestTrail, #PCT and #PacificCrestTrials (our personal favorite) and select a few standouts each week for your viewing pleasure.
Here’s some visual splendor chock full of the insta-greatness we have all been waiting for. The following photos were taken between 10/2 and 10/10.
It's been a long time, but I've finally put on a 5th digit to my milage count. From Georgia to Maine on the AT, across the northern US, and now southbound on the PCT. Walking all the way, staying in the woods as best I can. I could've taken a shorter or an easier route, but thats not really the point is it? Got a lot of challenges behind me, and some pretty daunting ones ahead, just gotta work through them all the same.
It's mornings like this that I feel so lucky to be out here, seeing our beautiful country by foot. Our bodies are capable of incredible things and I'm thankful mine is allowing me to push hard all the way to the border???? -10 days, 188 miles remaining- #pct2016 #washingtonhikes #pacificcresttrials #optoutside
Our last night on the PCT, we took this star trails photo over 60 minutes. During this time, 4 southbound PCTers passed us by, with 3 of their headlamps being captured in the photo. Very cool. :: :: :: #pct #PacificCrestTrail #getoutstayout #backpacking #thruhiking #livesimply #exploremore #hikenorth #rei1440project #pct2016 #TakeAHike #MexicoToCanada #ChooseMountains #thruhike #takeitoutside #liveoutdoors #WeLiveToExplore #neverstopexploring
Day 134 (9.15) Preparing to hit the trail at dawn with only 13 or so miles to go before the US/Canada border. Hard to believe four months of summer was gone and fall was underway, not to mention our 2650 mile journey was going to be completed in matter of hours. Time and distance are funny things on a thruhike. #pct #pct2016 #pctig #pacificcresttrials #pacificcresttrail #northcascades #bordertoborder #thruhike #backpacking
Old School is out of the Sierras! Phew! "The Winter" has felt like this cloud hanging over our heads telling everyone to get out before it rears its powerful head! Good luck to all the sobos out there! – – – – #pacificcresttrials #adventurethatislife #instagood #hikecalifornia #pct #pct2016 #pacificcresttrail #trailchat #sierranevadas #canadatomexico #thruhike
Hope there are still some SOBO’ers out there so this post can keep on keepin’ on.
Congrats to all that finished the #PCT! You deserve a beer or two or seven.
