Justin "2Taps" Helmkamp  UL Hiker w/ camera. Currently: Trail of Ice and Fire (aka PCT'17) ***Also looking for cool jobs*** AT 16 | PCT 17 📸 on Sony a5000


WASHINGTON | Since leaving the trail, I can't help but have my memories jogged daily by sights, smells, and music. Some things just bring you back, back to when the dirt and mountains was home.

METHOW PASS | As the sun sets on one journey, the opportunity for new ones begins. The PCT stole my heart and I know I will be back, just hopefully when it's a bit less gnarly 😊. .
I am currently working through a huge backlog of Washington pictures, so bear with me on future posts coming up!

EPILOGUE | Winter had come to the North Cascades as we found out on our day hiking back to Harts Pass from the US-CAN Border. As cold as it was, I wouldn't want the end to be any less epic!

PACIFIC CREST TRAIL | May 11th to September 18th. Mexico to Canada. Trail of Ice and Fire. This last trail marker deserves a hug, not just 2Taps. 😊 #pct2017

GLACIER PEAK PT. 3 | ...and yet, while I find myself in heaven, I realize the push to the end must go on. Only 4 more days. The emotions are running high, but I think it may be time to be done. Trail of Fire and Ice. #pct2017. The last push, here we go...

GLACIER PEAK PT. 2 | ...with views and lakes and clouds beyond belief.

GLACIER PEAK PT. 1| And then when you thought it couldn't be any better, Washington dropped the mic...

WASHINGTON | Spotted some Dr. Seuss plants in Goat Rocks a while back. Another worthy addition to #HotSexyFlowersofthePCT.

WASHINGTON | Prepping for the upcoming potential no service zone up to the border. Only 188.6 miles to go, and absolutely no rush, going to be taking these last days slow and enjoying the last days of the PCT.

ALPINE LAKES | ... And then the clouds lifted to reveal the hidden views along the open ridge, and for the first time in a while, I was happy to be on trail.

WASHINGTON | Changes in season, hoping for a change in these last days of the trail to move towards clear skies and big views. Small ones will have to do for now.

MT RAINER | From most ridges since the border, on clear days, Rainier is seen marking the distance. Always looming far above the others, the King Mountain.
