Hi folks! I’m Ruby and I love long-distance hiking and exploring the natural world. I wanted to have a way to share my experiences with friends and family, especially because I usually hike alone. It’s also fun to connect with other hikers, nerd out on gear, share challenges and successes, and hopefully provide some encouragement to other solo lady hikers. That’s why I set up this blog, so y’all can share in my journey. I hope you enjoy my adventures, my random ramblings, and the ridiculous amount of meticulous preparation that goes into embarking on long distance hikes.
