"You are not in the mountains, the mountains are in YOU"
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I saw this quote today and it hit a few feels. Mostly because it's been over a month now since we finished our Appalachian Trail thru hike and sometimes it feels like it was years ago, sometimes it feels like yesterday. The trail has a piece of our lives now, forever. A piece of me is missing. Adjusting back to the rush and the stress and the anger of society has been more difficult than I thought it would. I mean, we were only gone for six months, right!? How could our views and thoughts and entire lifestyles change that much just from living in the woods? 
I think just the fact that we lived with what could fit in a backpack changed a lot for me. You don't need anything. You will not achieve happiness by buying more things or expensive things. That's what you've learned from society. Go learn from the mountains. You'll be happier there. ✌️

Colorado Part III:

As we reached our campsite for the night, nestled in the tall pines just below Crestone Needle and Humboldt Peak. Two massive 14ers on each side of our camp. 
Puma, Scooter and I scouted out sites optimal for staying as warm as possible. With temperatures dropping in the low 30’s we needed plenty of coverage from whipping winds. 
After setting our tents up, we wondered up above our camp to watch the sunset over the valley. If you look hard enough you’ll be able to see a tent from our camp. Can you spot it?

Convinced that oatmeal is the best breakfast on trail, I started the PCT on the 5th of April. Convinced that oatmeal is something you want to throw in a cathole and put earth on it, i reached the Canadian border on the 19th of September. 169 days I farted in between Campo and Manning parc- maybe 168. I am sure I spent more than 1 month eating myself through zero and nero days. I lost a little bit weight, a lot of poop, a little bit of the feeling in 4 of my toes and a lot of my manners (well maybe I never had something like that). But I gained a lot of sweat, a few blisters, a lot of mosquitoe bites and some hair (my beard is very impressive, I know). Being sick made me skip around 100 miles- in this time i became addicted to a card game, watched the magical Harry Potter weekend on TV with tons of friends and managed it to get a colony of ants sleeping next to something called „bed“ (it’s similar to a sleeping pad but usually bigger). Wildfires made me decide to hitch around a section, which teached me that 8 hours of waiting with a sign at the side of a highway can be spent extremely great (and a little bit drunk if you find a Mexican restaurant close by). Two times I needed to do a detour because of wildfires- the first time I was swearing because of the steepness. The second time I was swearing, because of the frozen tent, bear canister, sawyer filter, fingers and other parts of my body. I had no knee or foot issues which made me feel like I want to make deep love to my boots. M&M‘s saved my good mood and my temper not just once and made me not only believe in Pokémon and Dumbledore, but also in the god of peanuts with chocolate. #pct #pct2018 #pctig #pacificcresttrail #thetrek #thruhike #longdistancehiking #backpacking #trekthepct

You know that feeling you get when you see a painting and wish you could jump inside it? Well, I am so very encouraged that @hikerinestonia chose a photo of me in the Goat Rocks Wilderness to watercolor and bring that fantasy to life.

Traffic flew by as time stood still. 
A passing car. 
A gust of wind. 
A drop of rain. 
A moment frozen in time. 
For that moment it’s just me. 
No cars. No gross weather. No sounds. 
Solitude. 
The breeze on my face. The tingling in my fingers. The feels in my heart. 
I’ll cherish this forever. 
Crossing Bear Mountain bridge on the Appalachian Trail. ❤️

Hanging off the side of Mt Bierstast, like heyyyo! Yep... I’d say this is an accurate depiction of how I hike tall stuff. •

Shoutout to my friends at work - they build me up and make me feel like I can accomplish anything ✌️

I love them and I miss them terribly.

The journey continues. 
I'm leaving October 20th to go to Flagstaff, Arizona for the next 6 months to work with the American Conservation Experience, a conservation professional development program offered through AmeriCorps. I'm ecstatic to have the opportunity to spend the next 6 months continuing to do what I love and to have a hand in protecting and maintaining some of the incredible natural wonders in America for generations to come. 
This also means... after this program, I am planning to hike either the Pacific Crest Trail or Continental Divide Trail next Spring/Summer. Another huge milestone for me as I work toward my (now public) dream of completing The Triple Crown- the highest achievement of long-distance hiking in North America. 
Thank you again for the encouragement and support. I'm looking into other ways for y'all to follow my ongoing journey. I have deeply rooted anxiety about putting myself out there for the world to critique, but I'm slowly overcoming that. If any of my friends have any experience setting up a blog/website please shoot me a DM. 
Life is short. I'm not willing to waste any more time justifying not following my heart. Thank y'all again.

THRU HIKE #2 DONE 🤘🏻
End To End, 271mi: 13 days, 22 hrs, 44 mins. And that’s with 24 hrs downtime in Burlington. 
No yellow. No blue. No slack. Every inch. 
I’m pretty tired. I think I’ll go home now.

After a long weekend in the desert, it's good to be home mingling with all our fall colors. (Full disclosure... There's a strong possibility I tripped on a dog & fell in the water after taking this picture 😵... Don't wade in Birkenstocks. #notgraceful)

10/11/18 We are back on trail and have officially made it to the South Sierras! The weather has definitely gotten much colder in the last couple weeks. According to other hikers on the trail, we are in for some snowy conditions in a few days. 
Speaking of other hikers, today we ran into some of my favorite hikers, Vince and his family @. I met the Strawbridges at the very beginning of our hike and it was so great to see them again. They are a family of 6 hiking the entire PCT, and they are always so happy and put together. @orcal and I nicknamed them the Mary Poppins clan.

10/10/18 We took a zero today. Spent the whole day resupplying and switching out gear for the High Sierras. Thanks mom and dad for all the help and delicious food. 
Also, a huge thanks to @summer_thehuman Not only did Summer pick Collin and I up from the trail when we were in Lake Tahoe and drive us back the next day. When she saw my Instagram post about not being happy with my new shoes, she offered to find the exact pair I wanted and mailed them to me.

Day 95 // 21.0 // 1204.9
Spent until the early afternoon riding the ‘roller coaster’. Between the elevation, hot temps + high humidity I was soaked in sweat 😅 Lucky for me the rain finally came in the afternoon! ⛈ The temps dropped and I was off the roller coaster so instead of sweat I was soaked with rain.... which honesty was better! Spending the night in a fancy double decker shelter built just a few years ago to escape the rain. Although we both prefer to sleep in our tent, I’d be lying if I said we didn’t appreciate the shelters on the rainy days! 👊🏼 #at2018 #atclassof2018 #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrail2018 #aspiringthruhiker #thruhiker #thetrek #optoutside #adventurousals #forceofnature #backpacking  #hikertrash #trektheat #mtnchicksdoitbetter #whyihike #likeamountaingirl #idhikethatcrew #keepnaturewild #withguthooks #guthookguides #atlasguides #wekeepyououtdoors #SOBO #everytrailconnects #bpmag #takemebackpacking #trailchat #Lifebeyond9to5

Day 105 CDT | It rained off and on all day. We were soaked and discouraged until we walked up on our friends camped early. This trail is more wild and rough than the PCT but it also makes it that much more beautiful. Less than 700 miles until the end of this journey and I'm starting to wish we had 2000 more. Im not ready for the border but here we come! .

My favorite part of the PCT? Waking up every morning. 
Even on the last day, I paused here to enjoy the sunrise, looking back on days passed and wondering what the trail would show me that day. 
Now, one year after kneeling in the dirt at the southern terminus in the company of a few incredible humans, I look back on those days as some of the best of my life. But I also look forward to the next sunrise, unsure exactly what it might bring. The spirit of the trail lives on in me, even though I ache to be back on it's firm, dusty tread.

Scrambled up this narrow chute on the way up Kinesava yesterday. You’ll be fine, just... don’t fall. 😊

Happy to be celebrating @ajmloveskale's birthday.  We've done a lot of cool things in the past year.  Including spending this magical evening at punchbowl shelter.  Looking forward to seeing what we have in store for the next one ❤️❤️❤️

CDT Day 83-84. Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 1-2. I slept terribly, gave up trying around 4 am, and started breakfast. An older hiker with a reputation for being standoffish was also up and we had a warm conversation about the CDT and the limitations of hiking in your 60s. He was struggling to keep the pace through the finish. The rest of my day off consisted of naps, pizza, ice cream, and being anti-social. There must have been 25 hikers in town celebrating their Canada finish early by consuming their weight in beer and cannabis, and I didn’t have the energy or patience for any of that. I’m turning into a grumpy old man. The next morning Bad Mash and I had a good laugh at the worse continental breakfast either one of us ever experienced—Eggos but no syrup, near-empty boxes of stale cereal, coffee we had to brew ourselves, and a posted weather report that hasn’t been updated in two weeks. The kicker was the young, unconcerned staffers eating what looked like an amazing take-out breakfast behind the front desk while we we were relegated to rationing out the few slices of toast left. It felt as if the staff took our money then extended their middle finger. We instead extended our thumbs and got a ride back to Two Medicine from Vince, a cucumber-cool Texan who has the most glorious, flowing mullet I’ve ever seen and channeled Matthew McConaughey circa “Dazed and Confused.” I told him I had LA friends who moved to his hometown of Austin. “Still friends with them? Good. Then the next time you talk to them ask them to move back,” he quipped. We linked up with Brian and got some coffee and snacks at the store before head out. A random woman stared in disbelief as I licked upwards of 1,000 calories worth of Nutella and peanut butter off my camp spoon. We headed up the Dawson Pass alternate instead of the official route because it would keep us on the ridge most of the day. It was spectacular. The sedimentary rocks carved by the glacial activity and Lewis Overthrust made for some unique peaks. The tent site in camp was a tight squeeze. Glacier takes its grizzly safety seriously. We tented in one spot, ate in another and hung our food in a third.
CDT Day 83-84. Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 1-2. I slept terribly, gave up trying around 4 am, and started breakfast. An older hiker with a reputation for being standoffish was also up and we had a warm conversation about the CDT and the limitations of hiking in your 60s. He was struggling to keep the pace through the finish. The rest of my day off consisted of naps, pizza, ice cream, and being anti-social. There must have been 25 hikers in town celebrating their Canada finish early by consuming their weight in beer and cannabis, and I didn’t have the energy or patience for any of that. I’m turning into a grumpy old man. The next morning Bad Mash and I had a good laugh at the worse continental breakfast either one of us ever experienced—Eggos but no syrup, near-empty boxes of stale cereal, coffee we had to brew ourselves, and a posted weather report that hasn’t been updated in two weeks. The kicker was the young, unconcerned staffers eating what looked like an amazing take-out breakfast behind the front desk while we we were relegated to rationing out the few slices of toast left. It felt as if the staff took our money then extended their middle finger. We instead extended our thumbs and got a ride back to Two Medicine from Vince, a cucumber-cool Texan who has the most glorious, flowing mullet I’ve ever seen and channeled Matthew McConaughey circa “Dazed and Confused.” I told him I had LA friends who moved to his hometown of Austin. “Still friends with them? Good. Then the next time you talk to them ask them to move back,” he quipped. We linked up with Brian and got some coffee and snacks at the store before head out. A random woman stared in disbelief as I licked upwards of 1,000 calories worth of Nutella and peanut butter off my camp spoon.

Heard Mt Washington got a bit chilly ❄️ over the weekend. Here’s a throwback to blue skies, 75 degrees, and sharing the entire mountain with just one other hiker. (Zoom for beer chug 🍺)

Day 251 (CDT Day 64): 34 Miles
After spending the night in Encampment I got a ride back up to HWY 70 and started my trip through Medicine Bow National Forest on Hog Park FS Road #550. Surrounded by snow covered peaks I was able to get a solid day of hiking , through much less snow albeit. A very cold and restless night.
.
Day 252 (CDT Day 65): 39 Miles
Finished up on FS #550 which led to County Road 129, which I would end up walking all the way into Steamboat Springs.  I am doing my best to stay as close to the CDT as possible by mimicking mileage to actual trail miles.
.
Day 253 (CDT Day 66): 0 Miles
I spent the day waiting out record cold snap for October in Colorado (-22 C). It seems like the entire state has been hit hard by multiple snowstorms over the past week. I’m intending to walk the official CDT between Steamboat Springs and Grand Lake, but may have to bail to lower altitude based on weather and exposure as the CDT goes over Parkview Lookout (12,300 ft) and Bowen Pass (11,500 ft) in this section. I am hoping that my remaining time on the CDT won’t turn into a pavement parade, but I have come too far to not connect my footsteps and finish this thing off. Unlike the AT and PCT, the CDT has many alternates and is not a well defined footpath so I don’t feel bad about walking Alternate routes, however it is a major bummer...but I am trying to remain optimistic. 7,300 miles down, 460 miles to go!!

Spent some time reminiscing on the trail that brought us together 🧡🍂
Spent some time reminiscing on the trail that brought us together 🧡🍂
A simple trick to protect your gloves to get soaking wet from rain or snow and your hands from freezing off- just put ziplock bags over your gloves 😁make a little hole in the side of two ziplock bags, so that you can stick your trekking poles through them. Then put your hands in the ziplocks to grab the trekking poles. If you have someone close by, ask that person to close the zippers or use your mouth for it. Easy and ultralight 😉 #pct #pacificcresttrail #hikertrash #pct2018 #thruhike #longdistancehiking #thetrek #trekthepct #ziplock #pctig #hiking #adventure #backpacking #outdoor

Basing the rest of my nights on 4 walls. Only a few more cold nights until Journey’s End! Skyline Lodge (Day 9)

This was the better section of trail in the northern part of Breadloaf Wilderness. Thought I wasn’t on trail, let alone the Long Trail, far too many times that day. (Day 9)

LOOK how big my pack was. 3 days in and I know I was feeling that thing. There’s no reason to bring that much stuff if you’re only going out for 4-5 days at a time, as you do on the AT !

Bishop, it has been great but I'm ready to get back on the trail! Spending time at Looney Bean Coffee and riding around town on the hostel's loaner bikes were the highlights of my time here.

This year I have hiked through winter ❄️☃️ (Georgia-January, February), spring 🌿🌸 (Georgia-Virginia), summer ☀️🌧(Virginia-Maine), and fall 🍁🍂(Vermont-???).
Each season has their ups and downs but I now know for sure fall is my favorite! 
Brisk temperatures but you stay cool while pushing 3 miles an hour. 💨
The fall leaves are absolutely gorgeous. 🍁
Sit around the fire at night without sweating. 🔥
I love all the colors. 😍

My favorite state on the Appalachian Trail is Vermont. 
The trail itself is gorgeous. 
Lush greens surround the trail in the Green Mountains. 
Throw in some fall leaves and I’m in heaven. #vermont
