Meet Meg

Meg here. Long-time Colorado local (13 years and counting). There’s nothing I love more than leaving the city and exploring my backyard of Colorado.

I went from calling myself a bad hiker to becoming a professional freelance writer for the outdoors.

Now I scale Colorado’s tallest peaks and inch my way to the top of desert towers only to have a relaxing night by the campfire each weekend.

The outdoors has so much to teach us about ourselves. The strength we find trying something new translates to all aspects of life.

I’m here to empower you to get outside with confidence. 

Get ready to level up your hiking skills, learn how to snag that secret camping spot, and so much more.

You have what it takes to feel courageous, self-reliant, and empowered when you get outside.
