Hi, folks! So my name is Rachel. I just graduated from Amherst College with a degree in Geology, and I'm just getting into this solo hiking thing. I whine a lot, and I'm also both extremely sappy and sassy. I've wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail since elementary school, so I'm excited to be finally making that happen in 2018! First though, I'm hiking the Northville Placid Trail in the Adirondack Mountains of New York!
