How to Stay Warm Walking in the Rain

This last winter I went to Point Reyes for the weekend and it rained 90% of the time. Our school group was there to see the landscape and hike, so we set out to hike despite the fact it was raining off and on. When I got back, I was really, truly soaked through but not cold and I was smitten with walking in wet weather.  It also feels a bit rebellious and rugged to do something we've been told not to do and so many people avoid. And the Point Reyes landscape was transformed and full of drama. I look tons...

Personally, this will be...

The antler has a long chain that makes it a layering necklace. The other three charms -- twig, acorn, and squirrel -- land near your collar. Their...

I Heart Moss Mission

I Heart Moss Mission

My mission to share my love of the outdoors and encourage other people to spend time outdoors. To start with, I'd like to share photos of the forests and mosses as well as guided hikes in the SF Bay Area.  It's my experience that how and where we spend our time makes a huge difference. We are making an important decision for ourselves when we choose to spend our free time hiking in the wilderness. The time outdoors hiking renews and refreshes us and allows us to be healthier and happier. All the days you choose to be active outdoors, add up to a healthier and more resilient version of...
