In April, Shelby will set off on a 4.5 month-long thruhike of the Pacific Trail (PCT), starting at the Mexican border and hiking north to Canada. With this hike, Shelby is taking on a new personal challenge, and is passing on the opportunities to learn basic wilderness skills and inspiration to the next generation of girls.
"I grew up believing that thru-hikes are something that boys do as a gap year before they go to college because boys are strong and can survive out there. Looking forward, I’m so grateful and excited to have the opportunity to join the ever-growing number of girls on the long trails - strong and thriving."
