Hello hi, I’m Maggie! (except we’re friends so you can call me Mag)

I’m here to share my experiences hiking, camping, eating – anything I’ve done that’s outdoorsy you will find here on A Hiker’s Life. I love being outside, I can actually say I’m allergic to the indoors because I recently found out I’m only allergic to dust! Anyways, I was born and raised in Minnesota – suburbs during the school year, north woods during the summer. If you’re a proper Minnesotan you have a family cabin and that is just where I fell in love with nature.

Since my childhood at the cabin (which btw is still a very real and very common place my family and I can be found at any given moment) I have lived in four states and hiked and/or camped on the East Coast and West Coast, Rocky Mountains and Adirondack Mountains, shores of The Great Lakes and parts of The Mississippi River Valley.

I’d love for you to follow along with me on my journey of living a hiker’s life, and just maybe you will find yourself outside!
