Spectacle Lake, Northern Cascades along the Pacific Crest Trail

"This picture was taken while I was hiking the PCT (mile 2,409.4) and was one of the most beautiful stretches on trail. The feeling of the wind whipping through my hair while looking at this view from the top of the climb was extremely invigorating. I will never forget this moment in time."

Cheer, PCT Class of 2019
