The Liebster award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I started this blog as a way to help remember the hikes I had been doing, as well as help me track my weight loss, I never realized how much I would love meeting so many talented writers that have given me so much to aspire too. To find out someone else likes reading my blog enough to give me an award made me feel incredibly special!
What is a Liebster? It’s a German word, meaning dearest.
Here are the rules to accept the award, bloggers must do:
  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves
  2. Answer the questions the nominator made for you and also create 11 more questions for the blogs you nominate
  3. Choose 11 people to receive this award as well and link them to your post
  4. Go to their page and tell them.

11 Things about myself:

  1. I am the youngest of 6
  2. I am on the edge of being a crazy cat lady with 4 furry friends ( 3 of them rescued, 1 an impulse buy like an expensive purse).
  3. I am a Halloween super freak, I decorate like crazy and all my storage space is mostly filled with those decorations.
  4. this might be Obvious, but I really love to hike
  5. I am addicted to pinning stuff on Pinterest….but not necessarily doing any of those things
  6. I love to read books and I shamefully switch back and forth between Sci-Fi Fantasy & Young Adult.
  7. I used to play World of Warcraft to the point that sometimes I would call in sick just to play all day. ( I no longer play it)
  8. I went to Culinary school instead of Law school.
  9. My Favorite city I have visited so far is Rome.
  10. The one city I can’t wait to visit is Paris
  11. I want to learn more about photography

Eleven questions from MoweryJournel:

1. How did you name your blog? – Hiking is a passion I have always had and somehow I had lost my path. After 6 months of doing it every weekend I realized it was making me healthier and it was as simple as that

2. Link to your favorite post on your blog. Upper Mohawk Lake Why this one? It was the highest I had gone at the time and the views were the best motivation ever. Since then I cannot wait to get to my first 14er( Mountain Peak over 14000ft)

3. When do you most like to write? Immediately after my hikes, when the experience is fresh in my mind.

4. What do you do for fun, other than blogging? Well hiking mostly, but I also love to read and cook. I may become addicted to making Jewelry thanks to my sister Mary, and my old Vegas lady personality who loves all that sparkles.

5. Who would you like to interview? Oops I forgot this one. My dad died when I was15. I would like to interview him to see what he would be like with me being an adult…..

6. Why did you start writing your blog? I wanted to remember all the hikes I had done and have a place my friends and family could go to see what I have been up to. If they ever wanted to do a hike, this would be a place for them to pick out a hike they think they might like. I also wanted a place to hold myself accountable on my weight-loss journey

7. Favorite food? Pizza

8. Favorite drink? Diet Coke or Vodka

9. What are you reading now? The Hobbit for like the 100th time

10. Favorite vacation spot? Las Vegas not because I like to gamble but because I love all the glitter and lights

11. Favorite Musician/Band? U2
