Episode 39: The Tale of Two Trails Interview with Leigh Rothermel

We interview Leigh Rothermel (shortstack) from Mountain Crossings of what it took to Thru-Hike 2 of the longest national trails in the Country. The Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. Leigh highlights exactly what it took her to spend nearly a year of her life on the trail and what both trails taught her about the outdoors, and life.

Some things we talk about in this episode:

  • Thru-Hiking is definitely a lifestyle change
  • The reason she tackled the Appalachian Trail and her perspective
  • Leigh’s experience on the Pacific Crest Trail
  • How she went from being afraid, to trusting the trail
