Trips on the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail
My favorite trail cannot be hiked too many times. The Sheltowee Trace is a great trail to learn about backpacking. It also has parts that will thrill the already-seasoned backpacker. These trips are sponsored by the Sheltowee Trace Association.

Arch hunting in the Daniel Boone National Forest
I've been arch hunting with my dad since I was a little girl. In the past few years, I've been branching out to find more obscure arches that require off-trail hiking, bush whacking, crawling under thick rhododendron, and even rappelling. I love leading trips to arches that people haven't seen before. I've got about 65 arches checked off the list of about 1,000 arches documented in the Daniel Boone. If you'd like to take a trip to an arch or two, I can be your guide.
