About Unicorn


Hi, my name is Katy Shaw. I am an avid hiker, traveler, and adventurer. Although I originally hail from Seattle in the United States, I’m currently traveling around the world with my husband, Daniel. He’s also blogging about our travels – you can view his blog here: The Wandering Hedonist.

I love hiking and try to explore new trails in each new place we visit. I’m also obsessed with National Parks, mountains, long-distance hiking and other outdoorsy things.

In 2016, I hiked the 95-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier. In 2017, I hiked over two-thirds of the 2650-mile Pacific Crest Trail which stretches from Mexico to Canada along the Sierra and Cascade mountains. In fact, it was while hiking the PCT that I picked up my Trail Name – “Unicorn”.

What’s next? New countries, more trails, and fresh adventures. I have some fun hikes planned for 2020.

Stay tuned…
