Hey I’m Jenna, MA native and hiking northbound- heading home starting in April 2018. Mt. Washington NH was my first ever hike- and foreshadowed my fondness of the outdoors since I was 12. Since then I’ve discovered a yearning of working outdoors along with living off what I’ve got on my back. Once I got over halfway through hiking the New Hampshire 4000 footers in one summer I decided I may as well walk 2200 miles across mountains while I’m attaining my bucket list goals. Excited to do some yoga, read as many books as I can handle, and consume even more pizza than that. Follow my trek through my blog here & on instagram @jennnerrr !
