Hey! So recently I've been doing a little bit more hiking but haven't been documenting as much because a lot of the hikes I'm doing are old favorites and I'm not driving too far to discover new places. I've been focused on some other things so I haven't had as much time for hiking but it's been really nice to get outside and enjoy the outdoors every once in awhile. Also, since I'm not hiking as much, I started running outside a lot more which has been really good for me. I secretly love the semi-cold weather (45-55 degrees is my jam) and I've been able to get in a lot of good, chilly hikes and runs. In defense of these less-than-stellar pictures- they've literally been point-and-snap pictures with either my phone or camera, I haven't really been going out with the intent to further my photography skills or get some good shots.

In the past month I've done two Instagram story takeovers for The Outbound and they've been so much fun! The purpose behind this blog is to help others find hikes and adventures in the Virginia area and provide directions to things I've done to make them easier for others. By doing Instagram story takeovers on The Outbound I've been able to highlight some of my favorite places in Virginia and I'm hoping to inspire others to travel to this beautiful state! So that's been a lot of fun.
