Goal: 50.0 miles
73.8 miles completed
Those who know me know that I love to hike. I am often asked why I choose to spend hours (or days) trekking through the woods. The answer is simple….I hike for my own mental health. The woods feed my soul and energize me like nothing else. I have often joked that my “happy place” is in the woods. Nothing cures the blues and resets my brain like a walk in the woods.
I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
