pctassociation Who can tell where this is just by these peeking peaks? | It's amazing how different people can experience different sections of the same trail in vastly different ways. ___________________________________ The weather, time of day, lighting, temperature, and even one's mood can affect how we experience our surroundings. This is why revisiting the #PCT can still be so powerful - it can always feel new again. __________________________________ Photo by: @a.c.t.i.o.n.j.a.c.k.s.o.n

pctassociation Did you know that when there are wildfires (which there have been many, recently, in many locations) the amount of work to restore the trail is huge? | Here we have or regional #TrailCrew in Southern California, the #TrailGorillas, tackling some wildfire restoration from the 2016 Sand Fire. ___________________________________ Who has placed trail maintenance at the top of their New Years resolution list? ___________________________________ #TrailWorkTuesday photo by: Dave Fleischman

pctassociation Wildlife sightings can be special, especially when it is from a safe distance. | Please help protect wildlife along the #PCT by properly storing your food... whether that is in a bear canister in required locations, or by hanging your food or storing it in provided lockers. __________________________________ Animals can't resist the food you have in your pack. Faced with a choice between eating grass or berries or many thousands of calories worth of hiker food, they're compelled to do anything they can to try and get your food. ___________________________________ #LeaveNoTrace by both respecting wildlife from a safe distance and ensuring proper storage of your food and toiletries. That way, we can continue to share unique encounters with wildlife in the future. __________________________________ 2017 Flora and Fauna Honorable mention, photo of a black bear just after Wilma Lake in Yosemite Wilderness by: Phillippe Davignon
