Greetings wanderers and ramblers. My name is Caro (trail name: Songbird). I was born on the prairie, grew up in the cascades, had a quarter life crisis in Boston, and have most recently found myself in the deserts of Utah.
I hiked the Camino de Santiago in 2015 and the PCT in 2018. Not sure where I'll be next, but I'm sure I'll find some folk song to encapsulate the experience.
"You'll have to get married after an experience like this." We set off with romantic ideals and found ourselves faced with a stark reality; just because you thru-hike together does not necessarily mean you'll end up together.
