We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything.
— Jonah Lehrer

Hi everybody, thanks so much for visiting the site! I started That Hiking Girl a little over a year ago when I realized getting my degree wasn't the only thing I wanted to get out of living in Oregon. Iā€™m a California native and recently graduated from Oregon State University with my BS in Mechanical Engineering. Basically, I don't have a ton of downtime so I spend as much time as possible traveling, exploring, and trying new foods all over the Pacific Northwest. Most of my posts are hikes that I've done within the last year and recipes I've attempted myself but may have found through other sites. To stay updated on new recipes and adventures, subscribe to our email list!


Follow That Hiking Girl on social media to stay up to date on posts and pictures and email if you have any questions about any of the hikes or recipes you see and possibly want to try! Because the site has become much bigger than originally anticipated, we are now accepting any stories/hikes/recipes that you guys would love to share:
