I am an avid hiker, traveler, and adventurer from Seattle, Washington.
I discovered backpacking in the summer of 2015. Although I went on some day hikes with my family and friends when I was younger, I never felt confident to hike on my own. I always wanted to get outdoors more, but didn’t really know where to start. Finally I got some library books, taught myself about the Ten Essentials, and hit the trail.
I went on my first solo overnighter in 2015, and then was sidelined for a while with hip surgery. In 2016, I hiked the 95-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier.
This year, I plan to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail. This blog will chronicle my adventures as I hike the PCT.
