Hi! I'm a queer WOC who loves backpacking all year round. I absolutely love taking people out for their first or fiftieth hike or backpacking trip. I have experience taking first-timers out and making sure they are prepared for all conditions - I'll carry extra stuff to make sure you are comfortable, give you all the information you need ahead of time, and can even set you up with gear! The outdoors are for everyone and should be easily accessible for everyone.
