This blog is about my academic journey and my outdoor adventures. I seems to be that rare or weird bird – a Black woman who enjoys hiking, canoeing, cycling and skiing. These things make me happy. A PhD was the perfect way to combine my love of the outdoors and to get out of my mid-life funk. My research is on the perception of the wilderness in the Black imagination. In other words, how to make the outdoors a more welcoming and inviting space for Black people.
