“People always ask me [why],” she said with a laugh. “At first, I was so urgent (to respond) so I just started to tell them all the feelings I was having but I realized that was tough to do. So I just boil it down to the short version: I just felt like walking. I just decided to click over to living in the actual moment instead of inventing all these fantastic fantasies for the future.”

Is it backpacking? No.

Is it UL? Nope.

It's just an interesting story that seemed (to me) vaguely relevant to hiking:
