Early birthday gift to myself? Ok, sure. Cheap plane tickets to Colorado? Ok, sure. Voucher that needs to be used from AirBnB? Ok, sure.

It started there and ended with miles on our shoes and rented SUV. If you ever considered traveling to Colorado, please do so! Read about my super condensed trip here and find out what you can do with 3 days yourself.

Backpacking the AT and Torreya

Over winter break I got a chance to finally be where the Wild Things Are (cue Alessia Cara).

I did a solo hike at Torreya State Park in Florida on Christmas and hiked a tiny portion of the massive Appalachian Trail.

Check out the entire post and some cool videos here!

Also please feel free to suggest any other must hike/backpack experiences for me. I’m always looking for new adventures!

And We’re Off!
