If there’s anything I’ve learned about The Great Outdoors, it’s that there is beauty to be found regardless of where you’re looking. Although I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest my whole life, I have only recently begun actively exploring the trails we have in this corner of the world. I’m not only creating this blog so that I can share my experiences hiking with anyone who is interested, but also because I want to be able to look back and appreciate the awe-inspiring beauty of the place where I live. It’s much too easy to take these things for granted.
