Apologies & Adventures

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted on here, and for that I apologize. Life has taken on a craziness of it’s own and time seems to be flying by with little down time! I’m not going to complain though! It’s been wonderful (albeit slightly exhausting). So what’s new? Things are busy! I have…

Why Hello There Spring!

Oh happy days! Spring is here in full force and I am soaking it up as much as possible! I have spent the past three days on wonderful hikes, my trusty four legged side-kick has been loving all of this exercise, and I am determined to continue spending as much time as possible outside on…

Microadventures

At a time where I have to limit what I do because of injuries and work, it’s easy to lose sight of adventure. It’s easy to say, It’s ok if I don’t get out this weekend, there’s always next weekend. Then that becomes the following weekend, and so on and before I know it, weeks or…

Bent Creek Trails

Most of you know that I’m not supposed to be hiking due to some issues with my knees. I’m currently on week three of physical therapy, two more to go before I have my follow-up! At last week’s appointment I asked if I could go hiking over the weekend, the weather was just too beautiful…

Defining Me

In light of yesterdays post I wanted to challenge myself to come up with ways to describe myself, using only one word descriptions. So here goes nothing: Energetic. Backpacker. Bear Bait (it’s a name so it counts as one word, right?). Nature. Artistic. Colorful. Adventurous. Writer. Musician. Family. Creative. Optimistic. Crazy. Outdoor-Enthusiast…. the list goes…

Addicted to Technology

Perhaps I’ve had too much time to think lately, I’ve got a few posts lined up that are entirely too contemplative. I apologize in advance! I’ve been thinking about my dependence on technology. I’ve become all too attached to my phone. I generally have it on airplane mode while I’m hiking so I can disconnect…

My Bucket List

I’ve got a pretty long list of trails I’d like to accomplish. And it keeps on growing. It is a lot of trails, there are lot on here that I’d honestly be happy to do just a section of the trail rather than the whole thing. But it would be pretty amazing to step foot…

Starting 2015 Off Right

My brother and I seem to have started a tradition where at the beginning of each year we find something outdoorsy to do together. Last year we spent the day skiing at Beech Mountain (which was one of the best ski trips I’ve ever had) and this year we decided to camp at Table Rock…
