Linnea Delucchi

My name is Linnea and I am one of the many love child's of our great God Zeus. I kinda wish my mom was Hera, but my mortal mom is pretty tight.In reality, I grew up in the swanky suburban town of Fair Oaks, along the American River. I spent my summers floating down the river, backpacking, day hiking, and swimming back and forth too many times in a 25 yard pool. In the winters, we skied North Lake Tahoe every weekend we could make it up.I still like all of those things and got the bug to hike the PCT in 2017. Somehow, I managed to complete it and am now addicted. Stoked to see what hike I choose next! Until then, writing, skiing, and traveling await.

We haven't really had to deal with the elements too much yet. Some heat and one rain storm. Well, those were not a factor in this last section, the
