My name is Anelia, trail name Sunshine, and I am thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail NOBO starting April 2022! I started working seasonally as a park ranger between semesters of college in 2017, and have been living the seasonal life for the past 5 years. I've seen some beautiful places and met the most amazing people during my jobs and travels out west, but I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with the Appalachian mountains that I've called home for most of my life!
