Maricruz Mosqueda

Hola amigos! My name is Maricruz Mosqueda. I was born in Zacatecas, Mexico but grew up in Colorado. This year I'm going to through-hike the Pacific Crest Trail! I'm hoping that my journey can inspire the Latinx community to participate in the outdoors more. I’ m mostly going to wing it, so I hope you enjoy my story.
