My name is Leonie (she/her) and in 2023 I attempted a thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. I am retired and have enjoyed this incredible opportunity to travel and hike my dream trail. I was still a newbie hiker/backpacker when I started the trail in April and admit that I still have lots to learn, I am excited for this journey and look forward to sharing my experiences with my family, friends and blog readers!
