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.
Every mile I hiked was a mile I walked away from that part of my life and a mile that I was walking back towards myself. Every time my legs ached from a climb, I imagined all the bad that I’d put myself through was leaving my body through that pain. The mountains were a tool, and it was carving me anew, shaping me into something else. Something stronger.
