C A L L M E Q U A C K
Well my first name is Ashley but I prefer Quack, I know it sounds weird but it's a long story, just trust me, its cool.
I would describe myself as a ferocious feminist with an insatiable urge for wanderlust (and food but we won't get into that here). I get outdoors quite often and I have learned a lot through my adventures. Also, having a degree in environmental studies and working as an environmental planner hasn't hurt either. Essentially, my life revolves around learning from and about nature.
So, I created this website to share what I have learned. My hope is that the information provided in this blog will inspire and empower other women out there that may have the same urge as me for exploration but maybe don't know where to go or how to backpack, especially on their own. So my plan is to fill this blog with the all the little nature wisdom nuggets I have learned along the way, whether it be a cool trail, badass adventure skills, solo exploration tips, mindful hiking techniques, or just information about the outside world that I find cool and interesting. My hope is you find the information you need in this blog that gives you that little nudge you need to start exploring.
But I would be remiss if I did not mention that my intentions for this blog are not entirely altruistic, I may have ulterior motives. See I adventure a lot, and most of the time I go by myself, which is amazing, but I would also like to share my adventures. So I am also creating this website to start building a community. A community of what I have termed "Soul Rooted Adventurers" - women getting out there and braving the wilderness, taking the time to care for themselves, live in the moment, and just be.
I would love to hear from you, so if your in the area and need a partner to go explore or want to learn about something in particular drop me a line.
