My name is Alli and I’ve come to believe that the best way to explore our world is by foot. For this reason I can usually be found hiking, running, frolicking or falling clumsily somewhere in Western or Upstate New York. After growing up in a suburb of Syracuse, I made my way to Western NY for college and have since settled in Rochester. Throughout the past few years I’ve fallen in love with all of the incredible outdoor spaces this area has to offer – even choosing to purchase a house in part because of its proximity to a particular park. In this blog I plan to share my adventures and the challenges faced, lessons learned and reflections from along the way. I hope you enjoy reading, and please feel free to share what you love about these beautiful places as well!
