Adventures on the trail and road

How these impact my wellness

I like moving. Whether in a vehicle or on my feet. With or without a destination in mind. Everything on this site revolves around a holistic wellness journey. My hikes and trips serve my wellness on multiple levels. I like bundling stuff.

Here are some of the photographic journeys.
