PCT Days 6–10

Trail Miles: 41.5 — 109.5 A lot happened in 5 days on the trail. In the moment time doesn’t seem to be going fast as you put one foot in front of the other and sweat drips down your arms and face, but in retrospect time flies. It’s hard to believe that we’ve been on the trail for 10 days — sometimes it seems like we’ve been on longer and sometimes it seems like we’ve only been on for a couple of d…

PCT Days 1-5

Trail Miles: 1–41.5 On April 24th, Monica and I flew into San Diego and were picked up by a past hiker of the PCT with the trail name Scout. He and his wife, trail named Frodo, host hikers the night before they start on the PCT. At their house we were able to pick up the gear and food we had mailed ahead and pack them into our packs. During the rest of the day we talked to fellow hikers, helped ma…

The trail goes through and near a decent amount of towns along the way which allows for several possible options to resupply our food. Option 1 — Buy Food in Towns This o…

I am Thru-Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

It has been a dream of mine to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) for a while now. The PCT is a trail that stretches 2,659 miles from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon, and Washington. Ever since I went on a backpacking trip in Yosemite the desire to thru-hike the PCT has been even stronger. I want to enjoy creation, get away from the busyness of life, walk a couple thousand miles, …

Yosemite Backpacking Trip 2015

Back in May of 2015 I took a trip out to Yoesmite and backpacked for 5 days and over 50 miles. Yosemite was cold and wet around that time of the year, but that did not deter me from having a good time. I saw some amazing sites, and I got to see the park with snow — something that not everyone gets to experience. Below are photos as well as a video of the trip. …
