Welcome to The PJ Adventure!
We are Philip Pfanner and Julia Frantz, longtime Oregonians, runners, hikers, and lovers of the outdoors. Since hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada in 2014, we have become hooked on long-distance hiking. This year, we are hiking the Continental Divide Trail, which traverses the spine of the Rocky Mountains via New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana.
We were grateful for the support of YAMA Mountain Gear and the mYAMAdventure program during our PCT hike, and we’re extremely excited to be using our Yama Cirriform tent again on the CDT!!
In our normal lives, Phil is an Emergency Room RN and Julia is a freelance violinist and violin teacher (who also dabbles in arts administration).
