Hello! I'm Jenna. I probably know more about thru-hiking than I should considering I have only thru-hiked the 310-mile Superior Hiking Trail. I was fully prepare for a PCT 2019 thru-hike when health issues swooped in last minute and kept me off trail. I still enjoy reading and writing about thru-hiking and any outdoor adventures and have high hopes of stepping on the PCT one day.
