Five great Pacific Crest Trail photos from our new Instagram account

Two months ago, we handed over the keys to our Instagram account to a volunteer. Best idea ever.

It turns out that there’s a really cool Pacific Crest Trail community that is posting photos, talking and sharing good times on the channel. It’s a ton of fun and a great way to explore the PCT in real-time. Follow us at @PCTAssociation. Tag your pictures with #PCTig so that we can re-gram them on our page.
