Maria Llorens

Hi there, I’m Maria Llorens, a.k.a. Sawgrass. I’m from Miami, Florida. Ironically, not many Floridians know about the Florida Trail, so I hope sharing my thru-hike beginning in Nov. 2022 will inspire more folks to explore our beautiful and (admittedly) weird state. Prior to this first thru-hike, I worked in publishing and nonprofit legal work. In the past few years, I took up hiking, film photography, and road tripping primarily in Florida and the southern U.S. You can check out my photos and writing on Instagram @dispatchesfromtheswamp and on my website,
