The Art of Getting Over It



Allie Donaldson, aka Taogoi, is our author and hiker. After her grandmother died, she decided she would go long distance hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail. Having never backpacked before, she decided to document the extraordinary experience through poetry and found The Art Of Getting Over It; Taogoi. Her experiences in life had no chance to compare to learning the lessons of the trail; pushing through pain and having to grow up fast in the Snowpocalypse of 2019.
