The Joy

Free spirited Joy!

Why I want to blog –

Sharing my experiences on the trail and spread this joy that’s been found. It has really changed my life and outlook on the future. I want to inspire you! And be inspired by you! Our futures look bright.

I am going to drive towards lofty goals in backpacking and in life. Why not. I know this is what makes me happy. I know this is what I am supposed to do. I have a community and family that supports me and that is pretty special.

To you who will get out on the trail with me, I can’t wait to share this joy with you 🙂 And to those of you that may not want to hit the trail but enjoy the story, I want you to share the joy by following my adventures. ©

Happy Trails,

Hi, I’m Monica – I want to inspire you to be your best. For me, that means backpacking. I am my best on the trail and I want to share that experience with you. I have a ton to learn but know enough to be dangerous. I can’t wait to blog from the trail. Sharing the good the bad and the ugly. All of those are sure to happen on any thru-hike. I want to connect with anyone who has an interest in learning about my trips and how to plan trips of their own. My end goal is to get as many people outside and on the trail as possible. I will be working on several beginner weekend trips this year for some guiding experience. Email me with interest. I look forward to seeing all of you on the trail! 🙂
