Hey friends! My name is Alexa. I was born and raised in Southern CA before, in 2015, I picked up my life and moved to the frigid woods of Northern Minnesota with my partner, Cooper. The two of us met while doing a year of volunteer service in 2014 and spent our first date on a cross country road trip from Sacramento CA to Portland ME. We love being on the move, which is why we eagerly agreed to attempt a thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail together. When not on the road or working, you can find me in the outdoors hiking or climbing, or teaching somatic yoga. We'll be stepping foot on the trail starting April 24 going NOBO!
We're five days into our six month trek, and we're loving every minute of it. Okay, maybe not the extreme hiker pains, and the occasional steep up
Oh wow. The day is finally here. Tonight, my parents will drop Cooper and I off at Campo, mile zero. We'll pitch our tent, maybe play a couple
When we made the decision to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, it was nearly two years ago as we were living out of a hammock in the Prescott National
Almost a year ago, Cooper and I and a group of friends headed out to our first attempt of a thru hike. Being from the Driftless Area, said friends
“Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong” I shouted to my hiking partner, Cooper, as I crawled into our car. We were preparing to head west
