I used to tell people that I hated nature.  Then I took my first hike to McAfee’s Knob and realized that hiking is my THING!  Now I’ve even started a women’s hiking club.



My name is Karen.  I grew up in Iowa, but have lived in the mountains of Southwest Virginia for almost 30 years.  My first hike was about 3 years ago.  After seeing pictures of McAfee’s Knob, I knew I had to experience it for myself.  Now I’m hooked.

This blog is to share my experiences, photos, and enjoyment of hiking.  I would love to hear from others who also share a hiking passion.
