Goal: 25.0 miles
14.9 miles completed
Six years ago I got out of a not so great relationship and didn’t know how to move forward. I packed up all my gear that had been collecting dust and took off on a solo camping/hiking trip to prove to myself I could do it and be okay on my own. Six years later and I still find peace and clarity in the outdoors. @wanderlost_tx
I chose to join #hikeoctober with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails, 2 causes that are near and dear to my heart.
