Hello! I am Jess. I am a nature-loving backpacker from British Columbia who loves capturing moments through photos and words. If given a choice, I'd choose a week hiking in the mountains over an all-inclusive resort every time. After spending 1,500 miles on the PCT and writing a book about my experience (not yet published), I realized that writing about my adventures is a beautiful way to share my stories and relive the experiences and emotions of the trail. This will be my first trip to the east coast, and I am excited to share this first-time experience with all of you! Follow my two-week journey as I hike the 336km East Coast Trail in Newfoundland.
