Why Soul Rooted Adventures?
We are a community of women empowering and supporting each other to explore, learn, and create in the wilderness.
Does this sound like your kind of people?
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.
Call Me Quack
Hi! I'm your guide to Soul Rooted Adventures and you can call me Quack. 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. I get outdoors quite often and I have learned a lot through my adventures. I have a degree in environmental studies and work as an environmental planner. Essentially, my life revolves around learning from and about nature. I can't wait to take you along with me.
We went on an amazing hike today. Thanks Ashely!

Ashley always plans the best adventures for us, that fit our skill level while still challenging us, and we always learn awesome tips and tricks along the way.
Ashley made the hike very unique to such a wonderful location! In addition, she proved extremely patient because I went to the wrong state park first, and she waited for me!
