We recently interviewed MaryEllen Hackett, an artist, park ranger and the woman behind Here and Farther. She describes how her passions for art and nature have shaped her life's path, and as an outdoorswoman, shares practical and sound advice for those looking to venture into the wild.
What would it take for you to quit your job and follow a dream? What life events would have to take place for you to use the money you saved for a house to walk 2,650 miles in the wilderness instead? Rachel Coffey got in touch with us recently and shared her story to hike the Pacific Crest Trail this spring and summer. Rach will not only be hiking the entire PCT, but she will be filming a feature length documentary in the process. On April 30th, Rachel will set off on a 5 month trek that spans the entire length of the United States. But what led her to this decision?
We sat down with Ashley Gossens, a writer, adventurer and nature lover living in Seattle, WA. We knew as soon as we discovered her piece about climbing 30 peaks before her 30th Birthday that there was a bigger story to tell. Ashley shares her frequent adventures as well as book recommendations to inspire adventurous women on her blog, Alpine Lily.
