Goal: 25.0 miles
36.1 miles completed
I first joined hikeOctober in 2020, and here I am joining again. Hiking brings me mental clarity, especially over the last two years, providing a therapy of sorts. Raising awareness for the health benefits of spending time in nature is very important to me and hikeOctober is the perfect opportunity for doing just that (:
