  1. What hit me today was 2 things: 1: the mist & the coloring & shades it produces; and, 2: how I might drive up into mountains & feel awed by & overwhelmed by them, but you 2 know you are able to scale & travel among them ON FOOT. Somehow that seems pretty incredible!

    1. Mountainous foot travel is an amazing thing about the PCT. The trail keeps us up on ridges amidst peaks, and brings us through some really awesome spots. Many of these places aren’t accessible except by foot or horseback!

      The smoke and fog we’ve been walking through recently gives the landscape a whole different feel, which is exciting visually. Good point about that change.

  2. Fabulous photos! I am wondering as you get closer and closer to Canada whether you will feel only a sense of triumph and great accomplishment, or whether you will also be sad that you have come to the end of such an amazing journey. I can’t picture the two of you with 9-5 jobs, so it will interesting to find out what you decide to do next.

  3. Really enjoyed meeting you guys @ Stevens pass while we waited for the bus. Hope that hitch came soon after we left. I am enjoying the blog and photos and am going to follow and anxiously wait the book. Great shots and stories thanks for sharing. If you need a few more backpack trip ideas while you are in seattle send me an email!

  4. Awesome photos! I also love the one of you guys walking taken from a low vantage point – how did you do it? Beautiful storytelling!

  5. Gorgeous! I’ve driven over Steven’s Pass, but it just doesn’t do the area justice. Thanks for the great photos and for not hoarding these for you book. :)

    1. Thanks Denise, and don’t worry, I still saved a few for the book. It’s just that in such a picturesque place, there was plenty of beauty for the blog and for the book.

      The PCT has shown us just how much more there is to see walking through a place instead of driving. The difference is powerful.

  6. Hope those Wenatchee fires aren’t impacting you much. Here on the 11th floor we are thinking of you two and wishing you lots of great energy and clear skies for your remaining steps to the border!
