Arizona trail day 39: donuts!
11/22/21 26 miles I finally sleep 8 hours, in the cold with my sleeping bag hood cinched into a small hole around my face. My once weekly 8 hour night of sleep! I wonder how this trail would feel if I'd been able to sleep enough. Long distance hiking is usually my biggest respite from … Continue reading Arizona trail day 39: donuts!
Long Distance Hiking Zines!!
Once a year, I make my trail journals available as zines. This is that exciting time! This month I'll be rolling out all my zines, now as full color, perfect-bound books with the photos integrated! First up we have Long Distance Hiking Zine #1- the lowest to highest route and the wind river high route. … Continue reading Long Distance Hiking Zines!!
Arizona trail day 38: kentucky camp
11/21/21 28 miles Yesterday Alan's back was feeling a bit tweaked, and this morning it's worse- pain bad enough that he's worried about moving the wrong way and having an old back injury flare up. He wants to be super careful with his movements, which means that, at least for now, he can't keep hiking. … Continue reading Arizona trail day 38: kentucky camp
Arizona trail day 37: Vail
11/20/21 18 miles I toss and turn all night. Is it the very bad day? The full moon like a lantern in my eyes? The fact that I forgot to drink magnesium powder before bed, so my tired leg muscles are achey and I can't get comfortable? Who knows. I'm relieved when it's finally 5:30 … Continue reading Arizona trail day 37: Vail
Arizona trail day 36: micah mtn
11/19/21 22 miles My alarm goes off before I've had enough sleep. I stayed up chatting with Sirius and writing my blog, and I already know, as I run my hands through my salty, greasy hair, that I'm gonna be wrecked today. It was worth it tho- seeing friends on trail is so fun! We … Continue reading Arizona trail day 36: micah mtn

Just $948 away from $15,000! 🌞 I'm so freakin grateful to everyone who's donated so far!! Trans Queer Pueblo is an all-volunteer … Continue reading So close to our goal!!
Arizona trail day 35: hutch’s pool
11/19/21 25 miles My clothes are fucked. We're at hutch's pool, a beautiful swimming hole on the AZT- maybe the only swimming hole on the AZT? Sitting in the sparkling sand next to the clear water that flows between the high granite walls, and I am trying, and failing, to pick the velcro-like seedheads of … Continue reading Arizona trail day 35: hutch’s pool
Arizona trail day 34: mt lemmon
11/17/21 19 miles I sleep in and when I wake it's 6:30 and the sun is rising, leaking over the horizon like a raw egg yolk. It was properly cold last night and moony and I was so cozy in my bag and I slept so good. And now I get to hike with my … Continue reading Arizona trail day 34: mt lemmon
Arizona trail day 33: rattlesnake, period, sunset, perfect day
11/16/21 10 miles Someone's alarm goes off in the dark cabin at 5:55 a.m. Noooo! That's ok through, I don't mind being awake. The world is so cool and full of such cool things! Shade makes a pot of motel coffee and I drink some out of my silicone camp cup and that's great too. … Continue reading Arizona trail day 33: rattlesnake, period, sunset, perfect day
