Alejandra May

Hi! My name is Alejandra (she/her), trail name Mariposa. I'm originally from Mexico but now live near Indianapolis, IN. As an archaeologist, I spend most of my time outdoors, but nothing compares to a good ol' backpacking trip. Thanks to my mom, I discovered backpacking in college and haven't looked back since! This year (2023) I completed an attempt to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. What an adventure! Feel free to follow along as I write about my 2198.4-mile journey! Happy trails!
