Thanks for joining me here! I’ve been blogging my hikes and backpacking trips since I started adventuring in 2012 in Connecticut, having never hiked a day in my life. I’ve learned many lessons, made friends, and traveled far and wide since then, completing:
- Appalachian Trail
- VT Long Trail
- John Muir Trail
- Tahoe Rim Trail
- Tour du Mont Blanc
- New England Trail
- Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway
- Tully Trail
and peak-bagged the New Hampshire 48 4,000 Footers, the New England 67 4,000 Footers, the New England Hundred Highest, the Adirondack 46 4,000 Footers, the Northeast 111 4,000 Footers, the New Hampshire 48 4,000 Footers in winter, the Northeast Ultra 8, and the New England 67 4,000 Footers in winter.
I’m now in the midst of section hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and working on the New England Hundred Highest in winter. I’ve also set a number of Fastest Known Times – the nonbinary self-supported Super Pemi Loop in NH; the nonbinary self-supported Cohos Trail in NH; and the overall unsupported North South Trail in RI.
I’m delighted to offer you a window into the wilderness through my experiences as a white queer and nonbinary trans hiker! As I’ve continued to hike and develop my photography skills, my photos have been featured in a few places, like the Tahoe Rim Trail‘s 2021 Calendar. For more regular updates, check out my Instagram!
If you’re interested in purchasing prints of my photos or scheduling a coaching session to discuss backpacking preparation, please reach out to me here or on Instagram.
