I am a 30-something wife, doggy-mom, freelance writer, and avid Nature Girl.  I enjoy pretty much any activity that gives me an excuse to be outside.  I feel my spirit is renewed when out in nature so I want to use this blog to encourage others to enjoy this incredible experience.  I also struggle with anxiety and seasonal depression and use natural and behavior-based methods to control these.  I want this blog to also be a place where I can share, with others, my successes and failures regarding my mental health journey in hopes that they will benefit as well.  

My husband and I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota so my posts primarily focus on activities in that area.  However, we are also avid travelers, so I outline the various journeys we embark on around the country as well.  The Trekkers engage in a myriad of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, canoeing, 4×4 driving, car camping, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, road trips, and a variety of others.
