Brown Girl on the PCT is a blog about long-distance backpacking and the preparation and training involved in such an endeavor, sometimes interwoven with commentary on race, culture, history, and heritage as it is both perceived and experienced by one particular black woman in the US. While the number of people with non-white heritage on the trail is steadily increasing, the average long-distance backpacker is still predominantly white and male. This blog is intended to host a different perspective, and encourage people of all ages and all walks of life to enjoy public lands and outdoor spaces.
For more on that particular perspective, check out the Hiker Page.
