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 10/19 and 10/26. 

A beautiful way to commemorate a truly epic journey. Nice art, @sher_nanigaans! #pacificcresttrials

Actually made it down the other side, but this is where I'm officially ending my #pct journey. Trudging through waste deep snow, near frostbitten and pushed to my personal survivalist limits. Glad for everybody else who made it through, shoulda had my damn boots, oh well. Leaves open the possibility of going again, which I don't mind at all. Time to get back to the beach ?. #pacificcresttrials #2016 #rei1440project #thruhikesyndicate #almostthruhike #hiking #backpacking #mountains #wilderness #wildernessculture #snow #winter #winterhascome #early #trees #frost #travel #adventure #adventuretime #explore #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #trail ? #storm #stormtrooper #nature #forceofnature #getoutside #getoutstayout

Looks like the snow is moving in, making it tough for hikers to get through the passes in the PNW! Good luck to all you hikers still out there on the trail.

Happy hiking!
