I hiked the Appalachian Trail northbound in 2017. I ended that trip with a love for backpacking, and have only grown more fond of it since then. I started hiking the Continental Divide Trail in April 2022. I started in southern New Mexico and am hiking northward from there. Hoping to share some of that experience with you through this blog!
