Her Side of the Mountain

BlogHer Original Post

I hike.  I camp.  I do it alone.  You can too.

In the past five years since I started solo hiking and camping, I have encountered a lot of reactions, from the awed (”I could never do that, it must be amazing”) to the critical (”that is unnecessarily dangerous and stupid, and so are you”) to the curious and interested (”aren’t you bored/lonely/scared?”).  I have often wished there was some resource or guide I could have looked to for advice and encouragement from other women who hike and camp solo, and so…Her Side of the Mountain was born.  May you learn from my mistakes, failures, joys and successes.
