Hello Blogosphere!

Hello Blogosphere, is anyone out there?

My first post exhilarating yet humbling.

About this blog: I need an outlet from all the days spent in the concrete jungle. I'm hoping to find a network of like minded outdoor enthusiasts to connect and converse with. I also hope to provide some tools for beginning hikers/campers/outdoor etcetera-ers to enable their own adventures. I'm no expert and I'm far from hardcore, but hopefully I'm a person that the gangs of weekend warriors can relate to.

About Me: I started backcountry camping in the fall of 2006 and have been slowly building my experience and my arsenal since then. I believe in leaving no trace, in encouraging others to experience the outdoors, and in appreciating the beauty all around me. It's my goal to visit a new National Park each year. My guy, Mountain Man, loves the outdoors as much as I do and is always pushing me to do something new and exciting. I do a lot of hiking and snowshoeing, a fair bit of camping, an increasing amount of road biking, a sprinkling of paddling, and a smidgen of climbing.

Hopefully I can encourage you to wander over and visit a while. If not, you'll just find me here typing away for my own amusement, dreaming of my next weekend adventure.

Happy Wandering,



  1. Your trip report about Garibaldi Lake and Panorama Ridge at is great! Couldn't agree more that this is a 'must-do' trip.

  2. Thanks so much! It's one of those trips that I'd like to do over and over again. The whole Garabaldi area is just such a gem.

  3. Hi Wildermiss-
    I'm still hoping you're going to send me a photo to use for "Thrifty Threads."

    Check it out- I've got a guy this time- awesome. It will be up tomorrow morning (wed 7/8)

  4. I know! I keep not having anyone around to take a picture. But I'm working on it, I haven't forgotten!
