Hi! My name is Alyssa and I am a recent university graduate with a BA in English and a travel enthusiast. As I was born and raised in Alberta, hiking, camping and just spending time in the mountains has always been one of my favourite things. I have created this blog first and foremost as a project to challenge myself to write more often, as well as a way to share what I am passionate about. I plan to write about past travels and hiking adventures until the COVID-19 situation has been resolved and I can return to explore the world beyond my backyard. That being said, I am still very lucky to have the Canadian Rocky Mountains so accessible, and have taken time during the pandemic to remember how beautiful my own corner of the planet truly is.
I hope my posts can inspire others to get out and explore their own local wonders, whether or not they are what I am writing about. I hope this blog will keep me accountable to this project and encourage me to continue beyond the initial burst of inspiration.
