Hi, I'm Hannah (a.k.a. Spring). I enjoy going for long walks in the woods with my rubber duck and deciding whether my cheese is too sweaty to eat after it has sat in my pack multiple days. I graduated high school last year and am taking a gap year in order to spend as much time outdoors as possible before I go back to school. I'm thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail NOBO starting in February and can't wait to see how many pounds of swedish fish and gummy worms I consume while on the trail.
