I've been a backpacker for more than a decade, but my first thru-hike was the Colorado Trail in 2019. It was amazing! I couldn't get enough of the alpine tundra and was exuberant over seeing seven moose!! Last year I attempted the Uinta Highline Trail, but had to bail due to a wildfire closure. This summer I am hiking the South Dakota Centennial Trail and Superior Hiking Trail.
