My first days of winter (Yosemite 2016)

My first days of winter (Yosemite 2016)

I can almost hear the silence and stillness of this picture. Makes me jealous.

I love the silence of a fresh snowfall. Nothing like it.

You can catch an Arabian white horse there. It's one of the best in the game.

Nothin' but thine own boots.

My dog, Bear, got to spend his first birthday backpacking in the Blue Ridge!

My dog, Bear, got to spend his first birthday backpacking in the Blue Ridge!

We did an overnight on the Art Loeb trail in NC and stayed on the back side of shinning rock. Bear really only carried a little bit of food, but he did well. I've done the trail from the Black Balsam side, but this is the first time I've come in from the boy scout camp side, tough hike!

Calling after him on a hike could be like yelling fire in a movie theater. :-P

for me, it's usually their own food and some chewies. gotta carry your own weight!

It was pretty cold on this trip so I had a blanket in one side and his food on the other. He can safely hold up to 8 pounds for his weight, but he was holding like 2 max

Pup got her 22nd 11k peak, Mt. Baldy in the Uintas. The derp is strong.

Great photo beautiful derp pup

She's a Catahoula-Heeler mix. Best backpacking, mountain biking, and ski buddy I've ever had.

I'm pretty biased, but Heeler mixes are objectively the goodest boiz and girls.

No argument there. My parents have a red heeler that essentially lives with me and the Catahoula now. Both are Velcro dogs haha. Never leave my side for anything.

7 months ago my PCT gear post hit the front page. 2650 miles later I stand on the Canadian border.

Hi reddit! 7 months ago I posted a gear shot of everything I was taking with me to hike 2650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. That post hit the front page with 32 THOUSAND upvotes and blew my mind. A huge wave of you started following me on Instagram and provided constant encouragement through messages and comments.

Creating posts on the trail was a great creative outlet and I'm thankful for all the support. I finished the PCT on October 15th and wanted to share what may be my greatest accomplishment.

Would be that different honestly. I'm planning on doing a full breakdown of how all my gear did and changes made soon. Maybe I'll do a top-down shot for it. Depends if my new apartment has hardwood floors :P

Now let’s see that “after” shot of the gear ;)

Man I've seen hundreds of these finish pictures and been the subject of two of them and seeing that raw emotion and joy never gets old. Well done hikertrash!

False Kiva, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

False Kiva, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

When did you visit? I thought this site was closed recently due to vandalism.

False Kiva was my favorite destination on my 2 week Utah camping trip. A moderate 3 mile primitive trail descends into the canyon and back up along a rocky embankment to reach this Class 2 archeological site. We camped at nearby Horsethief Campground and had a wonderful time.

We were there in early September. Just now getting around to sharing the photos. Didn't see or hear about any vandalism at the time.

My Grandpa(77) and his friend hiking the 11 mile trail out of Wanless Lake, Montana.

My Grandpa(77) and his friend hiking the 11 mile trail out of Wanless Lake, Montana.

It's one of our family traditions to do this Hike, and three years ago my grandpa thought he might never do it again. But we got him out there and he killed it. He's a stubborn old man so we had to sneak around and steal stuff from his pack when he wasn't looking to help him out. It was a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again.

That is freaking adorable. Good on ya keeping the family tradition alive!

Montana is underrated/ underpopulated on a 3rd industrial revolution stage

Alright but the hike sure was beautiful.

A friend and I hiked the Big Bluff Goat Trail along the Buffalo River in Arkansas over the weekend. The views were pretty amazing.

WHOA. That is NOT what imagined Arkansas to look like!

Northwest Arkansas is seriously beautiful country. It's nicknamed the natural state for a reason!

People don't give the Ozarks enough credit. There are some really great hikes in the middle of the country.

NW AR is so gorgeous! I live in SW MO and my family pretty far back is from around the Ponca, AR area. We go down there every year for Christmas and usually a time or two in a warmer season. It is so beautiful down there!

My little brother loved to hike and float. He recently passed away and in lieu of flowers we asked for donations to a charity that works to protect the Buffalo River.

Startled by the sound of something walking around my tent... It ended up being these beautiful creatures! Kamas Lake - Uinta Mountains, Ut.

The adult is 100% giving you the “go BACK to sleep” look.

"You gonna drink that pee?"

If your attempt it to scare folks out of the ONP because its crowded than carry on and well done, otherwise you are just being hyperbolic...one hiker died in a freak occurrence.

They are obviously wild animals - often habituated by stupid people - but a single death does not make them not mostly benign. I've had literally dozens of mountain goat experiences and can assure people they are pretty damn benign if you're not an idiot.

It’s pretty cool when people say they wanna come... and actually come.

I got a headache just thinking about how to plan this out

Anyone who owns that level of gear is gonna come.

Unless they’re like me who buys shits, uses it once, then moves on to something new.

Planning a backpacking trip for a dozen friends is crazy (tho only 9 actually made it). Especially with several alpha’s in the group-and I’m not even one of them. On top of that, all but one of us were flying in from out of state. Thankfully, one buddy was a co-planner, definitely necessary! And everyone brought something to the table. Even if it was just a bottle of Tequila.

Hiking thru the Haleakala backcountry on Maui, 3 nights (that’s the max allowed, per month). And yeah, though we had two rainy nights, we loved it.
