This week Andy talks with hiker and backpacker Justice Wise.
Justice Wise is a day hiker and a backpacker who is returning to it after a short hiatus which caused her to miss it greatly. She was a Girl Scout as well as a YMCA Camp Counselor in Northern New Mexico. She grew up exploring the mountains of New Mexico and this is where she feels the most at home. She feels that the mountains ground her and finds healing as she moves through trails as she explores with her dog, Rio. She is an advocate for mental health and healing in the outdoors and shares her experiences with mental health. In addition, she promotes Leave No Trace principles. In her off trail life, she is a Special Education Math teacher as well as a classical flautist. This summer, Justice plans to complete the Colorado Trail as well as many backpacking trips in New Mexico and has plans for future thru hikes in the years to come, one of which she hopes to take her dog Rio on next year.
