Belen Mercer

Oregon born and raised, it took me leaving and living in Georgia for all of my twenties to fully appreciate the beauty of home. Finally back, I have thrown myself fully into exploring nature and walking down as many dirt paths as possible. Hiking the PCT has been on my radar since 2013 but I never imagined that I would ever be brave enough to really give it a go until about a year ago. I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer and hoping to bring a camera along for the ride. I am leaving my husband and puppy at home for this journey. I will miss them immensely so please hug me if you see me on trail! or in town;) Can't wait to share my journey with you all!
