Welcome to Wandering Chardonnay! I’m chardonnay. In April of 2015 I started this journey when I decided to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail, starting at the border with Mexico and ending at the Canadian border. At the time I was a relative newbie to hiking and backpacking. I read some blogs, took a wilderness basics course, Google researched, read more blogs, threw something’s in my pack and took off. It was a great experience and seriously I thought that would be the end of it. But no, much to the dismay of my mother, I decided to hike the Appalachian Trail. After about 1800 miles of the 2200 I was over it and went home. But the trail still called me so in 2017 I thru hiked the Continental Divide Trail. So here we are in 2018 and I just finished the Appalachian Trail to round out the Triple Crown (the three major hiking trails in the US)! The first African American Woman to do so!!
It was a journey……..
but there was wine…………
