Hi! I'm Alaina, a passionate outdoor adventurer from Connecticut / Vermont. Each year I will be dedicating time to hike the Pacific Crest Trail on a mission to raise awareness about how global warming and hyper-consumer culture are negatively effecting our lives. The trail breeds a sense of community and admiration for our ancestors and the lands we call home. We as people have the power together to create positive solutions for a healthier tomorrow.

HIKING FOR A CAUSE

{ PACIFIC CREST TRAIL }

 

As a passionate outdoor adventurer from Connecticut / Vermont, each year I will be dedicating time to hike the Pacific Crest Trail on a mission to raise awareness about how global warming and hyper-consumer culture are negatively effecting our lives. We as people have the power together to create positive solutions for a healthier tomorrow. The trail breeds a sense of community and admiration for our ancestors and the lands we call home. 

 

On this journey, I will be sharing my experiences as I enjoy learning from the people and places I encounter. Follow the Trail Notes and explore with me as I hike through 25 National Forests and 7 National Parks!

 

Q: What's the Pacific Crest Trail?

A: A 2,660 mile trail spanning from the border of 

    Mexico/USA to the border of Canada/USA

 

No matter your politics, we all breath the same air, drink the same water, but we need to act now for current and future generations to breath healthy air and have access to safe water. I am devoting my Pacific Crest Trail adventure to benefit Protect Our Winters. My goal is to raise $1 for every mile of the trail that I hike. I am asking for your support through my fundraising page to Protect Our Winters. Your contribution big or small will be appreciated, and this trek of 2,660 miles will have purpose and meaning for all of us.

 

 

“The Pacific Crest Trail accesses and protects some of our nation’s and nature’s crown jewels. As a vehicle for introducing you to the outdoors, it is unparalleled.”

The People,

My goal is to raise $1 for every mile of trail that I hike on the PCT a total of 2,660 miles.

"The Pacific Crest Trail spans 2,660 miles from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon, and Washington. It reveals the beauty of the desert, unfolds the glaciated expanses of the Sierra Nevada, travels deep forests, and provides commanding vistas of volcanic peaks in the Cascade Range. Tying the trail together is a community of volunteers & passionate outdoor enthusiasts."

THE WORLD IS GETTING HOTTER,

AND IT'S OUR FAULT.

 

As the percentage of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere rises, our planet heats up. Glaciers melt. Seasons blend together as winters become warmer. Safe levels of carbon dioxide are below 330ppm. Right now, our carbon dioxide level is over 400ppm, and rising. What’s to be done?

 

Protect Our Winters (POW) works at every level of government to impact the climate change agenda. Together we can protect and create our world.
