About Heidi

img_4924.jpgHi, world!

I’m Heidi, a born, raised, and still-a-livin’ in Wyoming gal.  I grew up in a small mountain town of 100 residents where I was turned loose in the Wyoming nature to play and explore.  With no computer, video games, and barely enough TV reception to get one channel, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to grow up!

I describe myself as a recovering pro XC mountain bike racer who discovered that there’s a lot more to life than racing a bicycle, and that I need a whole separate blog to talk about it!  The idea for this blog was born out of a big, 19 day road trip in Iceland in 2018, which I realized didn’t really fit the theme of my other blog, Heidi Rides Bikes.  And… well… I do a lot more in life than just riding bikes!

Since a child, travel and life often meant road trips and seeing the sights all around the United States.  I continued this love of road trips and travel through adulthood, traveling all around the United States racing my mountain bike.  Currently I travel a lot for my day job in public health, which leads to awesome adventuring in the off hours, and try to fill my weekends with other adventures all over the place.

About me… I love cats (a lot).  I want to pet all the cats in the world!  I’m downright obsessed with Iceland (I’ve been twice with a combined travel time of one month).  Raspberries and cucumbers are my favorite food, and my Subaru Forester (Mr. Fozzy) is one of my best friends and biggest adventure buddy.  I own nine bicycles, and I shoot Nikon.

So welcome to my shenanigans!  You can use the menu on the right sidebar to select posts from a particular location I’ve visited, or by activity type.  Enjoy!
