Hi, I’m Melissa. You can call me Mel.

I’m an adventurer at heart with a newfound love of hiking. Why hiking? Because it’s a heck of a lot easier than running! Just kidding (but not really). I enjoy hiking because it enables me to get outdoors, see incredible places, and do something good for myself that’s challenging but not overly intimidating. All you need to get started is a good pair of hiking shoes and a willing friend.

I’m a firm believer that anyone can get outside and explore new places if they make it a priority, and wanted a way to share my adventures in the hopes of encouraging at least one person to get out there and have adventures of their own. My dream is to someday visit all 59 National Parks and take a killer Instagram photo (like the one above this blurb) at each park. Thanks for joining me on this journey, and I hope you enjoy the view.

Happy hiking!
