Having been in New York under a year, I haven’t yet been to Watkins Glen State Park but this post has moved it up to priority! I’m hoping to fit in a visit to this State Park this Fall and if not, definitely early in the Spring. There are so many amazing places to explore all over New York!
This post is told from the experience of 3 bloggers that met up at Watkins Glen for a beautiful, scenic hike (did you know it has 19 waterfalls!?). If you live on the East Coast, check out this blog post for stunning photos and a video as well.
I was excited to come across this post because I spent a couple years early in my career working in childhood cancer research. I have worked in general cancer and public health research for most of my jobs but always had a soft spot for pediatric research. Childhood cancer is a bit different because it’s often genetic rather than environmental.
This article features interviews with 5 women that work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude has contributed a lot to cancer research and each of these women has done their part to help during their time at St. Jude. I enjoyed the fact that each of the 5 women play very different roles with a variety of responsibilities.
If you’ve been following Backcountry Petite you know I’m into lifting heavy weights! I was excited to come across this post and although my theme is “adventure and travel” posts, I believe fitness is an aspect of adventure. In my opinion, being in shape and strong can play a huge role in how much you may enjoy certain adventures. Having back, leg, and shoulder strength means that I can carry a heavier backpack into the wilderness if I want. It means that if I opt to carry a heavier backpack, my body will be less sore from the weight and I’ll enjoy my trek more.
How important is fitness to YOUR outdoor adventuring?
