Te Araroa, Day 121
Tuesday 12th February
Morrison Footbridge > Arthur’s Pass, KM 2139.5
Distance Walked Today: 0

We woke up quite early, but to rain.

I chilled in bed for a while, hoping the rain would stop, but each time it paused, it would come back before I could get out of bed to start getting read.

With the rain looking like a permanent fixture for the day, and having heard the severe warnings for the upcoming section if the weather turned, we decided to hitch into the nearby village of Arthur’s Pass. We had been joined at our campsite overnight by another hiker by the name of Hannah, who had the same idea and joined us in hitching into town.

Then came the task of trying to find somewhere to stay.

Absolutely everywhere that had some sort of online booking facility seemed to be booked out, or was hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Luckily there was a great little place called “The Sanctuary” which doesn’t take internet bookings - we called up and they had some beds for all four of us, which we immediately booked.

We then spent the rest of the day eating food, doing jigsaw puzzles and waiting out the rain.

Why is it that the more you suffer, the better it seems in retrospect? 😁

The look after literally bushwhacking the majority of a 25km hike! 🤦🏼‍♂️ Oh well, #type2fun .

Magical morning in Big Meadows. The fog was thick and the deer were out in the masses. Hiked to Camp Hoover and then back up the fire road. Thank goodness for the wildlife, fire roads are the most boring hikes ever. This time I had the deer, snakes, snails, and chicken to keep me entertained. I hiked 10.2 miles to get 3.8 for the Shen 500. #shen500 #shenandoahnationalpark #findyourpark #hikeyourownhike #optoutside #camphoover #rapidancamp #womenwhohike

Te Araroa, Day 120
Monday 11th February
Kiwi Hut > Morrison Footbridge, KM 2125.7 > 2139.5
Distance Walked Today: 13.8km

Today was a really flat, nearly downhill sort of day. It basically just involved a walking straight along the Taramakau River valley floor.

There is supposed to be a trail but at numerous parts the trail is either unfindable or eroded to the point where it was often better to simply follow the river bed down stream. There’s plenty of dry river bed where the water obviously rises during heavy rain and such, but there was still a number of river crossings and criss-crossings.

At one point the trail seemed to just abruptly end and Erin basically had to lower herself off the edge of a small cliff and drop down. I wandered around a bit more and climbed up a ledge to find an alternative path down, but clearly this section needs some more maintenance work some time soon.

Eventually we came to the confluence of the Taramakau and Otira Rivers, but rather than continue along this poorly formed track, we decided to skip across to the highway and road walk down to Morrison Footbridge, which is at the beginning of the Deception-Mingha Track, up Deception Valley.

From all accounts this track, which follows the Deception River upstream, was one of the hardest sections and potentially dangerous when the river rises. With not too much of the day left, we decided to camp at the bridge for the night and leave the next day.

Pretending I'm out somewhere wonderful like this, instead of at home deep cleaning🧹🧽 😩 But hey, you gotta do it, and there's no better time than right before someone house-sits for you 🏡

My first covered bridge! It may not be red stained wood with a snowy top like the ones I’ve alway fantasised about in movies, but it’s awesome and I’ll take it.
•
I blue-blazed down a side trail to this bridge and then blue blazed back on to the AT afterwards. I realised that some of you might not know what the different blazes are so thought I’d explain just a couple.
•
White blazes are the white painted vertical strips that guide us to stay on trail. They are usually on tree trunks but can also be on rocks, blow downs and anything else. Apparently there are more of them going in the Northbound (Nobo) direction but we wouldn’t know about that...☺️ When they fade on the trees or a tree has fallen down you can get a bit worried that you’re lost; but then eventually you spot one and breathe a sigh of relief.
•
A blue-blaze is a side trail that leads to a point of interest or a shelter. Often you go down and can take another back out to the AT again, a little further on. Purists don’t do this; they go back to where they left the trail and don’t miss any AT. I used to think this was a good idea but I don’t worry about that these days. I’m walking so many miles that I will happily take an adventure blaze and come back on wherever it emerges. In fact, a seasoned hiker told me that very few thru hikers take the blue-blazes and he thinks its a shame, because there are incredible things to see if you take a slightly variant route for a mile or two. This works for me.
•
Retro blazing is what we say when we take a portion of the old AT from before they moved it. It’s fun to spot the old blazes and sometimes the old rock cairns. There’s yellow blazing; when you take a car along a section of trail, and then pink blazing; when you are crushing on someone and hike faster or slower to be near them.  There’s endless opportunity to riff on the blaze theme - as endless as the many ways you can choose to hike your hike. I take a free spirit approach; as long as you’re respecting the AT, nature and your fellow hikers then you do you, and enjoy this special trail your own sweet way.

#day11 #oregonsectionhike #pct2019 ~ July 29, 2019 ~ I just want to get to Shelter Cove! ~ some days, despite your best effort to stay in the moment, are about getting to a destination. this was one of those days. the trail was powder fine dusty because I was on an alternate that is a heavily used horse trail. the mosquitoes were unrelenting, and after the first six miles of my day, it was just up up up forever. all that kept me going was the thought of a beer and a bed. ~ of course most of my pictures this day are of the destination because I was on the struggle bus along the way, but the top pic is of lovely diamond view lake that offered respite from heat and mosquitoes.

FYI: If the humidity rises and you haven't washed your shorts in 400 or so miles - it will look like a bear LITERALLY scared the shit out of you... #ItsJustMudISwear #SaluteYourShorts

"New Pack. Who this?!" ⁣
⁣
So exited to finally the show off my new pack.⁣
⁣
Thanks to Nick and the rest of the wizards at Rogue Panda Designs @roguepandadesigns for making this possible and being a breeze to work with and answering all my neurotic questions and welcoming my feedback/input. This beaut is truly a one of a kind and it was amazing to work on customizing all the features to my needs.⁣
⁣
I nicknamed my pack 'Alohi' because the Hawaiian print reminds of Louis and the whole Pagano family and all the times they have carried me. ⁣
And that makes my pack feel weightless even on bad days.⁣

yesterday’s hike was a sweet way to wrap up this adventure 🌲⛰
Day 87 to 106: Tahoe City to the Oregon Border (mile 1130.7 to 1691.7)

California, I am so done with you!

After almost 1700 miles and more than 3 months in this state, I only had one thought: I need to get out of here! So on day 106 of my PCT hike, we finally crossed the California/Oregon border and left the sunny state behind.

These are some of the impressions of the last ~600 miles in NorCal, the mentally most challenging section so far - at least for me.

Southern California ✔️
Sierra ✔️
Northern California ✔️

Te Araroa, Day 119
Sunday 10th February
Hurunui No. 3 > Kiwi Hut, KM 2103.1 > 2125.7
Distance Walked Today: 22.6km

Today began much earlier, with the understanding that we’d have to get much farther than yesterday. Still, all the other hikers had left before we did.

Less than two kilometres along we came to our first three-wire bridge - a bridge consisting just of three wires (one for your feet, and one for each hand to hold onto) - no netting or bridge platform. That was actually fun and not scary at all, despite how it might sound.

From here it was not far until we reached Camera Hut. We saw in the hut log book that a hiker we had been walking with on and off, Tracy, had stayed here the night before with no one else - so it turns out there would have been space for us. But oh well.

The trail then came to Harper Pass Bivvy - a tiny but modern two-man hut just before the final climb to Harper Pass (962m). Then it was steeply back down 350m in under two kilometres, then slowly down from here following the Taramakau river.

The path seemed a bit obscure for a while and I wasn’t actually certain I was still on track, but soon enough came to Locke Stream Hut where we had a quick break and a bite to eat before carrying on following down stream.

For this section I was in front of Christian, and actually managed to stay close behind (and at one point in front) of Erin, and we even caught up with Tracy.

I had to stop a couple of times and hold myself up by my walking poles because I was laughing so hard at the Hamish and Andy podcast in my ears.

Then before long we made it to Kiwi Hut, where we met some more North Bounders and had a bit of time to chat and eat before sleep.

“I'm currently a full-time single dad to Maisy, who is 4 years old. She has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and is hard of hearing along with delayed development. She was officially diagnosed with Hearing Impairment last year and since then she has received hearing aids which have taken her a long time to adapt to. We primarily communicate through sign language. Maisy loves the outdoors but her balance and coordination is poor and with her hearing impairment, it can be challenging. At the same time, I am a big believer that the outdoors has helped tremendously with her development. We are always grateful for the memories we get to make in mother nature.” –– Brad | he/him/his | @alvanandsaige

“I'm currently a full-time single dad to Maisy, who is 4 years old. She has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and is hard of hearing along with delayed development. She was officially diagnosed with Hearing Impairment last year and since then she has received hearing aids which have taken her a long time to adapt to.

Te Araroa, Day 118
Saturday 9th February
Hurunui Hut > Hurunui No. 3, KM 2093.6 > 2103.1
Distance Walked Today: 9.5km

We left pretty late today, wandering slowly further up the true right bank of the Hurunui River, along Harper Pass Track.

The trail did pop up and over some small climbs, but nothing that was particularly strenuous or taxing. Very early in the day we came to a skeleton lain out on the path - a bit gruesome, but clearly someone had a lot of time.

Some time shortly after lunch I came to some hot springs that had been rumoured in the track notes and from fellow hikers. I didn’t take a dip, but I did smell the aromas of egg rolling down the trickle of a waterfall that fed from the hot spring. Shortly after this I was overtaken by a group of three hikers.

Just over an hour after the hot pools I came to Hurunui No. 3 Hut. This wasn’t actually our intended destination for the night, but we weren’t sure how likely it was to get a bunk in the next huts on the trail. The next hut (just over 3 km away) was only 4 bunks, and if even two other hikers there, we would run out of bunks. The next hut wasn’t even a hut - it’s a 2 person bivvy.

With less than 10km down today we decided to stay here the night, making up the distance tomorrow.

Day 1560

One of my favourite hills this one.
I know I've said that about a lot of hills in the past, but this one is definitely very close to the top of that list. Looking very otherworldly today using the 10 stop filter and appearing through the rain clouds.

Completed another bucket list item. Hiking all of Mt. Whitney in 1 day with Jason Kelley, @christopherradigan and @squatchmonster. 3am to 8pm. Started with headlamps and finished after sundown.  It was extremely beautiful and extremely difficult.  So glad we all made it. Not sure if I wanna do it again. Maybe if @jcirey or @house_of_hank wants to attempt it next year I could be talked into it.  #walkingtowardswhitney2019 #hikeyourownhike #hikingislife #getoffthecouch #dosomethingepic #whitneyisepic #bucketlist

Take off. It doesn't matter where you go. Just take off and go somewhere. Anywhere. Near or far. It's your choice. Just make sure you enjoy that journey. Find something interesting, beautiful, or both, about where you are. Create a special moment, (or two), and make today beautiful + meaningful + memorable. .

During this last hike the trail completely diminishes and bolder hoping is required for a good chunk of it. It was important for us to be sure-footed to negotiate the terrain.

Heaven in front of me, and Hell behind me. .
.
And by Hell, I mean the 50+ people behind me, you don’t see👀
This hike is super popular, and I can see why🏔. I literally had to walk as fast as I could just to have my own space. .
I usually like to steer clear of overcrowded trails. I’ll either go as early as possible or as late as possible to have a bit of solitude, but sometimes ya just gotta roll with it and hike you’re booty off to have a bit of distance. 
Kinda felt like I was at Disney🙄
It was beautiful nonetheless and 10/10 would definitely hike this trail again, just not during summer vacation 😂

Artic Henge.
Set in Raufarhöfn, one of the most remote and northernmost villages in Iceland where the Arctic Circle lies just off the coast, the Arctic Henge (Heimskautsgerðið) is under construction. Similar to its ancient predecessor, Stonehenge, the Arctic Henge is like a huge sundial, aiming to capture the sunrays, cast shadows in precise locations and capture the light between aligned gateways

Stuðlagil Canyon. A beautiful canyon with rare basalt column formation and a glacier river that runs through it. At the right time year, the water can be crystal blue. However, at the moment is has this grey colour due to recent heavy rain and the a nearby glacier melting and filling the river.

We're currently packing for SVCC. This trip will be different from the usual nature filled ones - all nerdy stuff. Can't wait for all the space/NASA panels 🚀
It's still too hot outside so here's a throwback to cloudy, cooler weather 👌

B l i s s 💦 
The quiet on my feed has been due to a much needed break taken with @nicknackjuggles to the Pacific Northwest, specifically around Portland 🌲 as I’ve mentioned on here, the heat has been really getting to me and so heading up to a place where we were wearing jackets and scarves was heaven. Also, the hiking was incredible! We took 8 hikes while we were out there (mostly to waterfalls) bringing my 52 hike challenge total up to 32 this year, caught up to the once a week goal if I’m to finish out the challenge. I’ll be burning with friends this weekend and so I’ll have more flow related content soon, but for now, enjoy the waterfalls and wildflowers with me 🌸

Te Araroa, Day 117
Friday 8th February
Hope Halfway Hut > Hurunui Hut, KM 2069.1 > 2093.6
Distance Walked Today: 24.5km

We set off from Hope Halfway Hut and immediately began a very moderate climb, after which the trail slowly meandered upwards over the course of the next ten or eleven kilometres until one more sustained, but still moderate climb at the end to a top of just under 800m.

Before this final climb we paused for a snack at Hope Kiwi Lodge - only partially a misnomer as even though this was just a hut, it was one of the nicer ones on this section of trail. Here we even found some extra packets of ramen that someone had abandoned! Score!

From here we continued the slow, easy ascent - initially with Erin straying off path until I used the forever helpful turkey gobble of distress to get her attention and set her on the right path.

Sometime after midday I came to the junction to Lake Sumner, which is the nearly 800m peak of today’s path, where I stopped briefly for lunch. The lunch was slightly uncomfortable as I had to lather myself in insect repellent to avoid inhaling dozens of sandflies with every mouthful. I later learned that Erin and Christian basically kept pacing rather than sitting down during their lunch break because without insect repellent sitting down was unbearable.

The trail from here hugged the northern hill that rose out of Lake Sumner before then descending to the valley floor of the Hurunui River and crossing to the southern hillside to follow the Hurunui River upstream.

After getting slightly lost at some obtusely marked trail intersections and backtracking to find the right path again, I eventually made it to Hurunui Hut which was old but comfortable.

Awoke to a foggy AM; climbed up to Knife’s Edge and felt on top of the world

Headed into the Yakima Reservation and over Cispus Pass; it started to rain so we quickly set up camp below a ridge; there was an intense thunder and lighting storm that rolled in and lasted four hours-it was intense! That storm was followed by high winds in the middle of the night.  Everything was soaked but was in one piece in the morning

We got to camp today and realized it was too early to go to bed since we’re only doing 15s cuz we are just #sexysectionhikers so we hitched into the nearest town and got WiFi. Only 60 miles to Canada.
.
Here’s an excerpt from the Notes App on my iPhone from one of these past few days: “All alone in my tent but I am brave. The worst thing that will happen is an animal will trip over my guy lines and it will freak me out and i will yell at it until it goes away. But most likely it will be a chipmunk or a mouse because those little things love getting inside my food. My feet hurt but they don’t feel hot at least. Tomorrow we camp at Pecos?

Ps: Weez is only 200 feet away lol”
