Some words from Dragonsky, herself
Highlights from my Summer include:
- I scored a Book deal with Disney (Andscape) for my Memoir “Mountain of The Moon” on pre-order next summer
- Completing 1500 miles of the Continential Divide Trail
- Learning how to rockclimb for the first time
- Hanging out and really getting to know Black Sherpa
Because of the Blackpackers Grant, I was able to complete 1500 miles of the Continental Divide Trail 2023. It is the second leg of my Triple Crown Journey. The Grant has helped with shuttles, hostels, food resupply and medical issues that arose on trail. I am able to continue on my journey to becoming the second Black woman to Triple Crown!
