Mountain Goat

Just a mini mountain goat by the name of Danyelle, here to goat all over the Appalachian Trail. I've done some things, and I've seen some stuff. In my brief time frolicking this earth, I have resolved to make it my mission to experience everything I can, and share it with everyone I can. My favorite things are the sweet smell of grass after it rains, and sitting atop a collection of seashells on the beach like Smaug over his mountain of treasure.
