About Us

Why THRU-r?


Carol Coyne (“Cheer”) hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2019, the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) in 2021/2022, and completed her Triple Crown on Mt. Katahdin along the Appalachian Trail (AT) in 2023.

While hiking the PCT, Cheer was taken by the community on trail, and wanted to extend that camaraderie and experience into normal life – before and after trail. She lives in Southern California (near the PCT!) and makes nature inspired ceramics for Dirtbag Ceramics when she’s not hiking.
