First ever hike in the otherworldly landscape of Joshua Tree. Look closely and you'll see my friend ahead on the trail.
I had the great fortune of joining a Trail Mavens weekend trip to Big Sur in September. Led by the ever-enthusiastic, enlightening, educational, effervescent Sasha Cox, I had a true getaway, where I met some fantastic women, took in new stunning landscapes, had honest campfire conversation and never checked my cell phone. By the end, it felt like I'd been gone for a week.
