About Hiker at Heart:
I’m a self proclaimed hiker at heart. Hiker at heart you might ask, what do you mean ? Are you a real hiker ? Well certainly I am, anyone can be. But my job in the medical field is demanding and time-consuming, preventing me from escaping the fast pace life in the city to go be outdoors and hit the trails as much as I would like. Instead, I spend most of my time day dreaming about my next adventure, and researching trips and trails to add to my ever-growing bucket list. I get out hiking whenever possible and every vacation I get is spent taking awesome adventures in the outdoors.
I’m not a thru hiker or a gear guru. I’m not a wilderness survivalist or ultralight, high-mile hiker. But I am a Hiker at Heart. I dream hiking and make the most of every moment I’m granted to spend in nature. Does this sounds like you ? Join me and check out some totally manageable trips, tips and trails and see that you too can enjoy the marvels and wonders that being outdoors can bring you, even if it’s just for an afternoon, day or a weekend. Adventure can be found everywhere if you know where to look for it. Anytime is a great time for an adventure.
I grew up in rural Nova Scotia, Canada. My parents brought me up to have a profound appreciation and love for nature and provided me with ample opportunity to experience the outdoors. Having done a lot of my schooling all over Canada, I got to enjoy much of the diverse Canadian landscapes- from the dense forests, to the rocky mountains, to the oceans and endless lakes. After graduation from college, I moved to Detroit, Michigan for work. As much as I love to travel to different countries, I’ve also discovered the amazing adventures that can be had right here in our own back yard. I love hiking, backpacking, canoeing, mountain biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. I don’t mind carrying a few extra pounds to enjoy a good glass of wine with a great back-country meal at the end of a long hiking day.
