i feel like social media helps foster a misconception about women in the outdoors. after you’ve hiked hours up a mountain you don’t look like you just stepped out of a sephora makeover. you’re sweaty, your face is red, hair is unkempt and windswept, and you’ve probably got dirt or mud splattered across your body. . . don’t let images on social media deter you from exploring. these women with contoured faces and blow outs and cat eye eyeliner are not the reality. as someone who is newer to the outdoor world it’s something i have to remind myself of. i know what i look like after gaining 6,000 feet of elevation. it looks like i earned it.
