Hey! Twerk here - and yes, I got that trail name exactly how you would think. I hiked about 750 miles of the PCT last year and am returning this year to complete a full thru hike. I'm a photographer in Portland, Oregon and recently turned the dirty 30. I'm a brand ambassador for Hyperlite Mountain Gear and will be posting constantly for my upcoming thru-hike so stay tuned!
