This Week’s Top Instagram Posts from the #PacificCrestTrail!

The bad news is if you’re reading this right now, there’s a pretty good chance you’re not currently hiking the PCT.  The good news is this may be the next best thing to it.

We continue to peruse Instagram in search of 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 5/8 and 5/17.

This trail….it’s so good ?
