Sierra Peters-Buckland

Hello folks! Sierra (yep, after the Sierra Nevadas) here, born and bred in Scotland but lucky owner of an American passport too. I’ve spent the last 5 years living and working in New Zealand, Australia, America and Scotland. My girlfriend (Ness) and I completed a road trip of a life time in our van last year seeing 50 of 51 national parks in mainland America. The next grand adventure is the PCT northbound starting April 12th.

Thank goodness I didn’t try hiking the PCT

Thank goodness I didn’t try hiking the PCT

…said me one year ago, mid covid, relieved that adventurous Sierra didn’t get me into something as nuts as hiking 2,653 miles from Mexico to Canada.
