love LIVE to hike!
Let no one be deluded that a knowledge of the path can substitute for putting one foot in front of the other.Mary Caroline Richard
Hello! I’m the voracious long distance walker and backpacker, Alison Young. I walked New Zealand’ s challenging Te Araroa and the classic Pacific Crest Trail in one year!
I guess it’s fair to say, I live to hike!
I got hooked on walking the first time my dad took me to Yosemite at age 13. next hike? The Continental Divide Trail.
I invite you to follow along on the journey, and share yours too!
