Hi there! My name is Emily, but you can call me Squishy out on the trail. I’m a 2018 Pacific Crest Trail thru-hiker, a backpacker, photographer, and content creator based out of Northern California. I try to prioritize being outside as much as possible. When I’m not actively hiking, I’m most likely thinking about my next trip or thru-hike. I am a brand ambassador for Gossamer Gear, a gear company committed to the notion that taking less allows you to do more, and I think that applies to so much in life, not just in the wilderness. I am passionate about our public lands, Leave No Trace ethics, and preserving the beauty around us.
