Welcome to The Hiker Podcast. This week I am excited to talk with influencer, writer, and hiker Shilletha “Dragonsky” Curtis.

Shilletha Curtis (she/her) known on trail as "Dragonsky " is a queer hiker, professional writer and influencer from New Jersey who is actively pursuing the Triple Crown of hiking. She will be the second Black woman to achieve the status and will be thru-hiking the Continental Divide Trail this April. And, she successfully completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in November 2021. Shilletha is also an excellent writer and her first article "Not Just Another Hiker" was published in 2020 by the ATC and The Trek prompting conversations about racism around the world. Since then, it has been her mission to diversify the outdoors, make the AT more accessible to BIPOC and address inequalities and racism within the hiking community.
