Hi, my name is Stephanie. I live in Virginia near Shenandoah National Park. I have spent many happy hours hiking and camping in the forests there with my children and my friends. I love to take nature pictures and have ample opportunities to capture many beautiful scenes.
I have enjoyed hiking and camping since I was a child. Our family did a lot of car camping when the children were young. As the children got older, we took a 6 week camping trip across the United States. We had a pop up trailer which served us well. I wish I had a digital camera then.
As the children got older, I made several backpacking trips with them as well as with an adventurous friend.
Now that I am older, I find it hard to find friends that want to or are able to go hiking with me. As a senior, the challenge is to find trails that are fun and picturesque, but not too difficult.
My other outdoor love is gardening. I grow flowers and vegetables. I don’t think you’re ever too old for that!
As you see, anything that allows me to be outdoors is what I choose to do!
