Hello!

Welcome to boots + black coffee, an outdoor and adventure blog for the off beat.

This isn't a story of how I quit my high powered job to travel across the country in a converted van. I also don't do yoga on the edge of cliffs, I'm terrified of snakes and heights, and I can't swim that well. 

I am- an outdoor lover who fits in day hikes and weekend trips as often as possible. I also own too many backpacks and go through a lot of sunscreen.

Join me in chasing waterfalls, checking out new gear, and finding the unusual in new places; documenting through musings and images.
