Okay, fair enough.
Maybe you're wondering:
"Why would this free Happy Trails newsletter be of any use to me?"
Well, here's what a reader named Giuliana has to say about it:
"I always look forward to your messages in my inbox. Some make me laugh, others make me think deeper, but I always end up learning something new about being in the woods with Mother Nature, especially as a female solo hiker."
I'm guessing that no matter where you fall in the spectrum of outdoor enthusiasts, you'd be open to some of the best hiking tips for women hikers.
There are so many ways to hike!
And I'd love to share these monthly tips with you!

My hiking addiction means that I:
All of that devotion to hiking adds up to a woman who is bursting to share with other hikers.
Thus, Happy Trails newsletter!
And to show you how dedicated I am, here's a photo of me in my "office" (on Banshee Peak, near Mt. Rainier).

Maybe I'll provide a summary of a research article on hiking nutrition.
Or share a hot tip on a brand new hiking resource.
And I'm always on the look out for sources of hiking information, making your suggestions for a review in the newsletter both welcome and appreciated.
So much fun, new and high tech stuff, so little time.
Some of it is over-the-top expensive, some of it is just hype, but once in awhile I stumble across something worthwhile.
I will only pass along what I myself have tried, or what someone I trust on the trail has tried.
And it doesn't always have to be geeky! Even a bandanna is considered a worthy piece of gear when used in a unique way, in my opinion.
Here's where I share the latest resources and fonts of knowledge that I've discovered:
