wildsideof50 was born out of the realization that women over the age of 50 are being underrepresented in the world of outdoor adventures. Women past the age of the invention of social media have been hiking, backpacking and exploring the beautiful and glorious outdoors well before blogs, Facebook, Insta and social media were even a “thing”. Women over 50 have long known the power and intense pull of the great outdoors and┬áhave been playing in the dirt, conquering mountains, paddling down streams and sleeping under the stars all while receiving the simple therapy that nature provides. This blog is a celebration for those women that have paved the way and those answering the voice in their heart to start their own adventures.
