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! See Video here!
It was a journey……..
but there was wine…………
Soooo…….what’s next? Skiing of course!
