Sarah Lesiecki

Hi there! My name is Sarah but I'm better known as Lil Bear on the trail. I've lived in both the city of Chicago and suburbs for most of my life but now reside in Northern Alabama upon turning 30. I started LASHing the AT in 2019 and hoped to complete most of the trail in 2020, but like many of us I postponed during the pandemic and stuck to a couple short hikes. So here's to 2021 and seeing what kind of trail miles it brings! Feel free to visit me at for posts about other things too.
