Elizabeth Brentano

Hey all my name is Elizabeth, friends call me Liz or Lizard but I'm most excited to earn a trail name in my first thru hike on the PCT this year! I'm a 25 year old tree farmer from St Paul, Oregon. My goal is to make friends, drink beer, tag plants, learn Spanish, and document it all as I hike. I'm excited to share my adventure here, thanks for following along!
