Class of 2021 Finishing Now

My Instagram is flooded with Class of 2021 hikers finishing and I love reading their posts and seeing them standing on the monument. Some are naked. Some are splashing their Tramily with beer and champagne and all hanging off of it. Come have ashes of loved ones to sprinkle since they carried them so they could hike the PCT with them. I can’t imagine that last mile walking towards the Northern Terminus. Such an incredible feat this year hiking through super crazy heat when afternoon temps touched 115 degrees and all the fires that knocked out some hikers. Some of the early starters got past the fires luckily and finished.

Oh the kids today!!! If you search on IG for the hashtag #PCT2015 you will see 15,000 posts. Forward that to 2019 and a non covid year and that hashtag of #PCT2019 you will find 78,000 posts. This year… I searched for everyone that I could find hiking in 2021 and gave them a follow on IG. Not everyone on the Northern Terminus is naked. (That won’t be a thing for me… ((super promise)). Here is some posts and some words from some IG posts that I snapped a screenshot of. Good thing Fred didn’t turn around since I don’t think you can have a “bush” on IG.
