Taylor Weixl

I'm Taylor and I'm hiking the PCT NOBO in 2018. I'm looking forward to the challenge of a thru hike and I'm excited for the opportunity to share this experience with other hikers. Aside from hiking, I'm into riding my bike, skiing, positive psychology, yoga, and trying new plant-based recipes. I'm based in British Columbia, Canada.
