I’ve spent the past few years noticing myself slowly turning into my Mother. Most people would notice this from things like the way they speak to their children or by realizing some annoying mannerism they swore they would never have. Me? I noticed by the amount of money I started spending at REI, the amount of hiking books littering my coffee table and my increasing obsession with the outdoors…things could be worse.
I’ve finally grown into my Pacific Northwest upbringing and am tailoring it as best as I can to the desert where I currently reside. The plan? Tackle the Southwest.
