About

Lizard a.k.a. Jon Adams

Lizard is originally from Northern California but moved to San Diego in 2005 to attend San Diego State University. After graduating in 2008 he never left and now does his best imitation of a local, even marrying a born and raised San Diegan. Lizard earned his trail name on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2015 (you’ll have to sift through my daily entries to figure out how). Lizard hopes to one day complete his triple crown of hiking with thru-hikes of the Continental Divide Trail, Appalachian Trail. Other bucket list hikes include Mt. Shasta (my hometown peak I’ve yet to summit), Mt. Whitney (more determined after an attempt foiled by white out conditions on PCT 2015), and a Rim-to-Rim Grand Canyon hike. I’m sure others will pop up with time so stay tuned.
