Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! I created a blog because one day I realized I love taking pictures of nature and researching different places to go hiking. Do you remember the first time you realized that you were in love with nature? I do. I was watching TV one night and saw a commercial for Enjoy Illinois, which is The Illinois Tourism Bureau. A quick picture of a waterfall flashed across the TV and I was left wondering “There’s no way that was in Illinois…was it?” So after a quick search, I found out that the waterfall in the commercial was from Starved Rock State Park in northern Illinois. After a weekend visit, I knew that my life was changed and from then on, I would do whatever it took to go hiking and see the beauty of nature as much as possible. I hope that by finding this blog, you find a great place to go hiking and explore nature for yourself.
A bit about myself…well I am just a girl with a dog who has this constant feeling of wanderlust (or wanderlove as I call it) that I can’t seem to shake. I find myself researching and planning for adventures all of the time. My adventuring companion is my rat terrier, Ellie. I think we are a perfect pair since she gets just as excited as I do about adventures =) I find myself planning my trips around her and am very disappointed when something is not pet friendly LOL.
If you have any questions about any of the places I have visited, please leave a comment at the end of the post. I would be more than happy to answer any questions! You can also click the Follow Button and you will receive an email each time a new adventure is posted!
