Erica Notini

Hello world! I'm Erica, 23 years old from New Hampshire. I grew up hiking the Whites with my mom and brothers, which I'm sure is why I'm a completely kick ass human today (thanks mom). I'm also a runner, an almost college grad, and soon to be NOBO thru hiker! I'm wicked stoked to be able to share this adventure here with all of you lovely people. Happy hiking!
