All Info about my hikes will be on this blog. These writings will consist of my personal experiences or personal opinions! I usually do poems and short stories, some writings may also be in progress so keep a look out for added material.
My name is Taran (Barley), I’m a hiker at heart and love being in the mountains. I’ve been hiking most of my life, but really recently got into backpacking when I started college at ETSU.
Being next to the Appalachian mountains really expanded my knowledge on hiking and the idea of thru-hiking. Seeing the best in things is my way of life, having an optimistic lifestyle keeps me happy!
Why do I hike, mainly because every trip still to this day is always different, the trail gives you so much and in the end its always a new lesson learned. For more info on my hikes or to keep up with my travels check the blog.
