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 10/11 and 10/18.

"Go out into the woods, go out! If you don't go out into the woods, nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin." ||May 7-October 10|| And then suddenly, it's over. Just as quickly as it began. 5 months and 3 days of endless beauty, laughter and growth. I'd be lying if I said this thru hike was easier than my first. It presented challenges that I never could have anticipated, but came with a surprise ending that brought me incredible joy. I'm so thankful for yet another opportunity to discover myself and others in a state so raw and natural. I have so much gratitude for the hiker community! Without their support and that of family and friends, this endeavor would likely be impossible. Although I'm ready to live inside for AT LEAST a few weeks, I couldn't be more excited for my future adventures ☀️? #pct2016 #pcta #pacificcresttrials #womenwhohike
