Wanderlove follows both my mental and physical journey along the 800-mile thru-hike of the Arizona Trail, “a trail as unforgiving as the plants themselves.”
I set out in March of 2016 to do a complete thru-hike of the Arizona Trail. Along the way, I was confronted with personal, mental, and physical challenges that often prevented me from continuing. This doesn’t include drinking from water that most people would never even consider an option. I found both some of my happiest moments in life, as well as some of my most loneliest. The adventure brought me through nine of Arizona’s eleven different biomes and taught me invaluable lessons along my path.
If you’ve ever wanted to see into the mind of a thru-hiker, this is as best as I can offer from my perspective. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions, or would like to offer some feedback.
