On the shorter fare, she's completed the Arizona Trail and has logged thousands of miles on foot through the Pacific Northwest mountains and trails. Most recently, she summited all 5 of Washington state's volcanoes concluding with Glacier Peak and Mt. Baker summer of 2017. From summit peaks to valleys below, Jessica's outdoor passion leads her to the white water on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and both Middle and Main forks of the Salmon in Idaho!
