Hi! My name is Alexandria. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, I now live in the grand adventure state of Utah! I love to snowboard and rockclimb, but my first and greatest love is long distance backpacking. I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2016, and the Colorado Trail in 2018. I will be setting out to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in May of 2019. Happy trails!
