I'm "Ironjen." I'm a 38 year old professional photographer with a triathlon addiction who has always felt most at home in the mountains. My Appalachian Trail thru-hike adventure is the fulfillment of a dream 26 years in the making, and it began on March 18, 2015. It's a punctuation between life in Washington, DC and life in the Rocky Mountains. I'll be hiking with my husband, trail name Muskrat, and we look forward to celebrating our first anniversary in the woods!
