Ariane Petrucci

With a desire to hike every possible mile, I've got a lot left to check off on my bucket list. I'm fueled by the outdoors and the grandeur backpacking offers. The outdoors is my playground. I've gone from being a climber to a backpacker and I absolutely love it all! So far I've traversed Georgia, Arizona, South Dakota, Arkansas, Michigan and the Kalalau Trail in Kauai to name a few.
