Hi, my name is Beth, aka Bad Ass and I’m attempting to hike the PCT NOBO 2023. I’ve previously section hiked about 900 miles of the PCT, but this is my attempt of a long distance thru hike. I’ve hiked the CT, JMT, HST, TCT, WT, EBC, O trek, and mountaineered Shasta, Hood, Whitney, and half of Rainier. I hike for grief therapy, as I lost my 21 year old son in 2018.
