Allie

Hey! I'm Allie (she/her), also known as Arctic Aster. I'm a Michigander in search of some real hills on the PCT. In my daily life, I’m organizing youth climate activists to go after greedy bankers. Solving the climate crisis seems impossible, but so does hiking 2,650 miles. If I can do one, the other will feel just a bit more in reach. In fall 2022, fossil fuel CEO’s better look out because I'll be back with a vengeance. But for now, it's one foot in front of the other.

The Joy of New Challenges: Why I’m Hiking the PCT

For me, the PCT is about full-sending from a place of joy & exploration--what could happen? What am I capable of? What kind of world can be built with that sense of determination and possibility? What does it mean to love something that has the power to transform me, the world, and to utterly break me?
