My parents indoctrinated me to hiking and backpacking when I was a baby, and I've been at it ever since! I spent my childhood in the Pacific Northwest and I'm currently based on the east coast, recently relocated after almost a decade in California. I've been doing photography for most of my life as well. You can spot me in the wilderness because I'll be that weirdo with a full-size camera -- it's a really good incentive to keep the rest of my gear as light as possible ;)
My dad and I have been hiking and backpacking together for just about my entire life. We like to think we're pretty good at it by now!
This summer, my dad and I are bound for California -- where he grew up and where I lived the first nine years of my adult life. High Sierra Trail, here we come!
Hello, world of The Trek! I’m Vienna, and I’m super excited to be joining The Trek’s team of 2024 trail bloggers. This year, I'm headed for the High Sierra Trail, a short but spectacular thru-hike in California. Welcome aboard!
