HIKING & BACKPACKING
There’s hardly a more iconic way to travel through nature than one step at a time. Hiking and backpacking can take us deep into nature, into our own minds, into relaxation, or into challenging adventure. Whatever you seek on the trail, I hope the extensive information on this website — the result of thousands of trail miles and countless nights under the stars — helps you find it.

Hi there, I’m Alissa. Since falling in love with the great outdoors I’ve had the pleasure of walking the Arizona Trail, Colorado Trail, John Muir Trail, Tahoe Rim Trail, and countless shorter amazing trails throughout the US and abroad. I love solitude, big views, and a good lightweight gear setup.
I love spending nights under the stars, but a good day hike is satisfying too. I never hesitate to hike solo but also enjoy company. I don’t always know what I’m doing – I just figure it out as I go! My other favorite ways of exploring are adventure travel and bikepacking. You can read more about me here.
