Kaili Morgan

I'm Kaili, pronounced kay-lee for those who were wondering. Outdoor enthusiast, Disney freak, marching band geek, and avid reader. I am currently an Anthropology undergraduate at Mississippi State University, but will be graduating soon to take on the big wide world! Life after college terrifies me, so hopefully I'll be staying in for just a few more years to get that PhD. Before that though, I need some time for soul-searching. Life is getting me down, and I am yearning for the quintessential human experience. Enter, thru hiking. What is more human than wandering the earth by foot? Nothing, I tell you! June 2015 will see me begin my SOBO thru-hike journey at Katahdin!! Life altering experience, here I come!
