Hi! My name is Lily and I'm stoked to be attempting my first backpacking NOBO thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail beginning late March 2023. I'm 23 and originally from Brunswick, Maine (hiking home)! This past winter I got to experience my first winter skiing out west as a lift operator in Big Sky, Montana. Someday, I'll be pursuing a career in sustainable urban planning and design, but, for now, it's one foot in front of the other and swatting bugs!
