Allison Olson

I'm Allison, I like long walks on the beach when it's raining, so I think I'll like a long walk in the woods while it's raining. Tree cover, am I right? I'm a New Englander, gone Virginian, currently calling the AT my home (try explaining that to strangers). I like to hike, climb, ski, read, do yoga and run marathons really slow to raise money for charity. When I'm not outdoors, you can find me snuggling my rescue pup and binge watching tv shows and documentaries (instant gratification is my worst enemy and leads to sleepless nights). Follow my journey SOBO on the AT.
