Hi! The name's Amanda. I’m 23 and a recent college graduate with an obsession for all things nature. I hold a degree in Wildlife Biology and am currently working for the Forest Service. Since being dragged into the world of the outdoors by my best friend, I’ve been aspiring to thru-hike the Appalachian trail.

Along the way I’ll be blogging and sharing about my mountain adventures, nature encounters , and all of the trail fails that come with living outdoors for five months.
