Kristin

My name is Kristin but you can also call me ‘Half Moon’ or ‘Half Moon Lou’ a trail name I was given last year on the trail.I was attempting a NOBO halfway section hike to Harpers Ferry, WV in 2017 when ten days in I found out I had to get my Gall Bladder removed and pulled off the trail.But I’m happy to be reattempting my hike this year, departing from where I left off at mile 69.3.My ten days on the AT were more than incredible and I can’t wait to get back out there and once again live on the trail.
