This Week’s Top Instagram Posts from the #PCT
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. Good news, this is the next best thing!
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 6/9 and 6/16.

Day 51, Mile 835: The Sierras are tricky. The passes, all above 11K’, are frozen in the morning and slushy by afternoon so you have to time them right. Factor in steep ascents and descents and bonkers winds and cold… Not so easy. But, once you get to the other side – as is the case here with Mather Pass – it’s all nature porn. Pictured: a little lunch spot I call Grouse Meadow. #pacificcresttrail #pct2016 #pct #pacificcresttrials

I couldn’t bring myself to crop this picture, so here’s one of the waterfalls we saw in Sequoia National Forest on our trailcation! It was an amazing trip/fire closure alternate and I can’t wait to share more pictures! #pct #pct2016 #pacificcresttrials #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #thruhiker #hikertrash #waterfall #california #backpacking #hiking

I’m missing the water this week, so I guess the trend here is lakes and waterfalls!
