adventures of a long-distance hiker

Steph hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail from 2019 to 2020 and keeps a blog of her adventures here!


In 2019, I embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. In 2020, I finished the journey.

From April to October 2019, I hiked almost the entire Pacific Crest Trail (the PCT). This incredibly beautiful, 2,650 mile trail stretches from Mexico to Canada through some of the most breathtaking scenery that California, Oregon, and Washington have to offer. Due to some intense snow in 2019, I had to skip part of the Sierra section, but I finished during the summer of 2020 (with some careful resupply planning and lots of mask wearing).  Want to learn more about my journey and how I made this happen?


sweet midwest hikes

Being an outdoorsy sort of person in Indiana can feel kinda sad sometimes - so much corn, so few mountains. But there are actually some great hikes within driving distance of the midwest.
