My name's Kelly, but hikers call me Ibex. I cut my teeth as a thru-hiker on the AT in 2018. Then in 2019, I converted a van and set out to hike as many North American trails as possible. These included the Grand Canyon, Wonderland Trail, Bisti Badlands, and a metric butt-ton of US and Canadian national parks. The adventure will continue in 2020 with a northbound thru-hike of the PCT. Let's do this!
