The Mind, Body, and Spirit Behind Hikes and Hot Sauce!

Hello fellow hikers, spicy food aficionados, and people who enjoy seeing the beauty that nature can provide! I’ll be sharing with you my joys, my achievements, my trials, and my spicy experiences as I commence on the journey known as life.

I’m a twenty-something looking for purpose in life, finding it by hiking, helping others, and following my passions. I have a college degree, a great job, and a great life. Lately, however, I’ve been searching for a bit more. I’ve discovered a sense of adventure deep down within, and I’m pursuing that to the fullest!

The normal rat race has lost its appeal to me, so I’m pursuing my passions and seeing where it leads. Maybe a new career, maybe a new relationship, maybe just a new journey!

Whatever happens, I’m in it for the long haul, looking forward to sharing the experience with you. I will be thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail starting May 11th, 2017 from the Mexican border and I cannot wait to share my journey with you!

Take a hike and spice up your life!
