I support HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
I hope to get out on the trail for a section in March, depending on Covid restrictions. I am section-hiking the entire trail as a life-project, bit by bit, and have logged over 700 miles so far. I blog about it now and then here: climbingtreedesign.com
I hike for my own mental wellness, and to honor those who struggle with illness. I am also an artist and have a line of cards for sale on my shop with all proceeds being donated to Hike for Mental Health. Please consider supporting this critical cause with a direct donation here, or via card purchases here: climbingtreepress.etsy.com
