Day 139 | August 15th 2019 | 7:58 A.M. | Mile 2653.1 AND JUST LIKE THAT….I COMPLETED THE PCT! It's crazy to think that only four and a half months ago I stood at that southern terminus 2,653 miles back. My pack was 40 lbs, I had little backpacking experience, I was carrying mascara (I know, ridiculous), and I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. Fast forward to today….my pack weighs 23 lbs, I've slept outside for months, my clothes are filthy, and I smell like dog, but my heart is full, and I've completed the journey of a lifetime. A huge thank you to all of those who were rooting for me and were a part of the journey, you guys are amazing and kept me trekking!💕🥾 . . . . . . . . #pct #pctig #PCT2019 #PACIFICCRESTTRAIL #pacificnorthwest #pnw #thruhike #thruhiker #backpacking #hikertrash #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwhikers #adventureanywhere #adventure #hiking #hikingculture #modernhiker #neverstopexploring #optoutside #choosemountains #roamtheplanet #REI1440project #exploremore #getoutside #getoutstayout #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #activeliving #activelifestyle

A week ago I turned 30 on trail. We hiked all day and Oli pulled out a bottle of bubbles at diner, then we hiked some more and I fell in a river trying to catch my filter. Just a regular old day on the PCT 😂 I would have liked to write an inspiring post about my thirties starting off living the dream, but it turns out the last few weeks have been the hardest so far for me, trying to find the strenght to keep going every damn day. I’m writing this from a lakeside resort where I would gladly lounge for a week or so…but we gotta go. That’s one harsh truth about thru-hiking : you always gotta go. 🤷‍♀️ #ridgekidsmountainclub #classof2019 #pct2019 #pct2018 #pcta #pct #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #thruhiker #trekthepct #backpackerlife #thruhike #pctig #thetrek #backpackerlife #happytrails #womenwhohike #optoutside
