When Jess Beauchemin takes a hike, anything can happen. She’s traveled from shoreline to mountain top, rainforest to desert, city to wilderness, East Coast to West Coast and everywhere in between. Tackling the Hike366 project, to record a hike on every calendar date of the year, gave her a deep sense of purpose with each adventure. In this book she shares some of her favorite and most memorable tales from nearly fifteen years of hiking.
Hiking year-round requires a fair amount of adaptability, patience and grit; Jess recounts the ups and downs of taking on such an ambitious endeavor. Useful tips are scattered throughout the book to help you plan your next adventure, no matter where and when you go.
Read about 366 adventures, learn to define hiking for yourself and get inspired for your own hiking project in these pages.
