Hey everyone, I’m Jess. I currently live in the Midwest and have taken to getting lost in the woods and trails, primarily in Missouri. Occasionally I venture out into other states and have plans for more adventures across the US. In many of my posts you’ll see a returning character, my 12lb pup Isabell. She’s actually a better hiker than me, something that is not lost on almost everyone she comes into contact with.

My primary goal for this site is to provide an entertaining place for visitors to learn about trails and corners of the world they may not know exist, and hopefully encourage other people to get out more and relax in nature. You may also see a few posts that are more recreation-related than hiking-related, as not ALL my traveling involves hiking. 🙂

Keep exploring.
