Favorite Childhood Experience:

One of my favorite childhood experiences would have to be the many hikes my dad took me on in the Appalachian Mountains. We did many 3-4 day trips and would often take me out of school for some new adventure along the AT. I remember one time hiking in the Shenandoah National Forest on a warm fall day and on day three we hiked out in a blizzard. Thankful I got to see so many beautiful, natural places as a kid.
