The posts that she currently writes on the blog offer you a insight into this past life and how it has molded her into the person she is now. To get a taste of some of the best articles on the blog you can see Some of her best stuff which offers a collection of blog posts, podcasts and fiction.
As mentioned earlier Carrot Quinn has twice walked the Pacific Crest Trail which is a mammoth 2,660 mile trail stretching from Mexico to Canada. Even more amazingly was the fact that this was her first long distance trail, after completing it she decided to write a book Thru-Hiking Will Break Your Heart which is available on Amazon.
