Sierra Knotts

I have been craving a new adventure ever since returning from a year spent abroad in Thailand. And I think I've found one with the vast challenge and mighty experience of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. I'll be spending the 5.5 months flip-flopping from Harper's Ferry to Mt. Katahdin and then Harper's Ferry to Springer Mtn. You can find me on the trail strumming my ukelele, reading a good book, snapping pictures of the sunset, or writing about the day in my journal. Things I won't ever be able to get enough of: Snickers Bars, dogs, and naps. Happy trails, everyone!
