The past year has flown by at what seems to be record speed. While 2015 was full of adventure and surprises, I am so excited to see what is in store for us in 2016. I somehow got incredibly lucky and not only got to complete two of my three attempted thru hikes over the summer, I also ended up moving into a beautiful home in the Smoky Mountains. I'm living my dream - getting paid to hike - while spending time in the place where I learned to love the trail. This year has taught me so much about gratitude and what it means to accept help when you need it most.
I have so much to be grateful and thankful for and look forward to sharing all our adventures with you in 2016! Happy Holidays!
