Rachel currently lives in New York City and loves to find new adventures. Her blog Backcountry Petite is about finding escape in the outdoors (especially away from the city life), seeking adventure, and inspiration for other petite women.
Living in New York City, you are surprisingly close to a lot of wilderness locations. What are some of your favorite local getaways?
My favorite local getaways include anything accessible by Metro Transit since it simplifies my escape. Otherwise I love to go anywhere remote and peaceful which is at least 2 hours from the city (Catskills, Delaware Water Gap, Adirondacks).
How do your adventures getting back to nature help you when you are back in the city?
Every get away to escape with nature I return to the city newly refreshed and inspired. I try to keep myself busy while in the city and then plan for escapes and getaways.
