Today’s Feature Friday is both a story, and an opportunity that we can’t wait to tell you all about. Meet woman who hikes, Marinel de Jesus @browngaltrekker: 
Marinel is an avid backpacker/hiker who left her 15 year career as a lawyer in DC to start Peak Explorations which focuses on the inclusion of indigenous women in the trekking tourism industry. Her work led to her move to the Andes mountains in Cusco, Peru and she is now working closely with the porters in the Cusco region to empower and advocate for better working conditions on the treks such as the Inca Trail. 
Marinel recently launched The Porter Voice Collective to provide a platform that aims to listen to, celebrate, amplify and elevate the voices of porters in Peru, Nepal and Kilimanjaro. The mission is to create a certification for fair and equitable treatment of the porters in these regions. Marinel is also a writer at browngaltrekker.com which promotes both women and diversity in the outdoor and travel spaces. 
Marinel is currently organizing a once in a lifetime women-only trek with the indigenous women in Mongolia's Altai mountains where participants will engage in an authentic nomadic migration. This trek is led by the indigenous women nomads and female eagle huntresses who are competing at the Eagle Festival which is scheduled to occur following the trek. This trek is scheduled March 13-23 2020 and is also in celebration of Women's History Month. See our IG story for more info and how to apply/get involved.

“Together, we’ve completed the trail...” It’s Thru Hiker Thursday! Here’s a story about a NOBO and SOBO hikers @meredithj7 @cece_zed crossing paths on the PCT!
“As I hiked north, I knew I was getting closer to my Brussels babe, Sprout, who was south bound on the PCT. We met night one on the AT when we were both starting our crazy thru-hiking adventures, not knowing how our lives were about to change. She calmed my nerves and provided laughs as we sat around the fire that night. We continued to hike around each other on the AT and formed a little trail family. We called ourselves the Pancake Pals. The last time I saw Sprout was the morning I broke my elbow. I packed up in the shelter as she hiked out and said ‘see you at camp!’ I never did see her later that day. You never know what obstacle life will throw at you next and how much time you have with someone. Right now, I’m just going to savor every moment with my trail family. Trail life has been good to me and I’m so grateful for this community!”

Sydney Human just became the youngest person (9 years & 3 months old) to have summited all of Idaho’s 12K foot peaks! We first learned of Sydney from her Mom Stacy during our Hike Like A Girl posts. Stacy sent us a photo of her and Sydney on top of one of those 12K footers… having a tea party. They even bought sundresses to change into at the top to celebrate the occasion. From Mom Stacy @shuman3808, “Sydney's love for the mountains is amazing to me. Every trip, every summit, is such a special memory that I know her and I will share and hold onto forever. Raising your daughters to believe they can set big goals and crush them is something I am so passionate about. Reaching these summits that Sydney has had on her list is just a small part of the goals she shares with me. She is learning that she can rise beyond any limits in the big beautiful blue skies and on mountaintops!”
Just this past week Sydney competed Mt Leatherman to officially complete all of Idaho’s 12,000 foot mountains. Congrats to her and kudos to Mom of course for raising a daughter who believes that she can move mountains!

This weekend we celebrated the end of summer… but you wouldn’t know it with some of the views we started the day with in the Pacific Northwest! We had group hikes in Oregon and Washington where we hiked through and in the clouds! Our group hike in Oregon was ultra special as we had friends and family join us and @merrell came too, with shoe demos for our hike and swag for all. We summited Paulina Peak and literally summoned the sun with a yoga flow at the top. Swipe right to see it!
“Yesterday morning, 21 women hiked through the clouds to the summit of Paulina Peak. Once we reached the summit, we did 30 minutes of group yoga and those sun salutations must have worked! By the time we were ready to hike back down the clouds had parted and the sun was out giving us the breathtaking views that we knew were there all along!” - WWH Ambassador @daniwyeth
This weekend the Women Who Hike Washington group made our way up to Snow Lake under misty skies. This 7.2 mile round trip hike might be rocky at times but the trail is mellow and we were treated to some peekaboo views of the surrounding valley when the clouds cleared! Along the trails blueberries are ripening and the fireweed still in bloom. Since this is the second most popular trail in the Snoqualmie corridor we had plenty of dogs to pet and people to chat with as we made our way to the lake. Once there we enjoyed a snack, chatted and we even got to see the other side of the lake- just once! All in all it was a lovely way to spend a Sunday and cool off after a couple of hot days here in the PNW!” - WWH Ambassador @tandemtrekking
Summer might be winding down, but we are still gonna be hiking through it til the end! Here is where we are headed next- Utah, Arizona, Connecticut, Vermont, Minnesota, and Lake Tahoe! Become a member on our website and join these lovely ladies- the WWH community on the trail! Thanks to the awesome ambassadors who hosted this weekend and all of the women who joined us!

It’s the weekend! We’re headed to another new place today, but we can’t help but think about and reminisce on these views that we took in just one week ago in Idaho! If you tuned into our stories last week you saw our four day backpacking trip through Idaho’s Sawtooth National Forest. We can still hardly believe the clean and pristine trails, wildflower fields, waterfalls and all the green-blue alpine lakes that we saw along the way!
Are you planning a backpacking trip this weekend? This summer? Tell us all about it in the comments below 👇 and if you’re undecided about where you’re headed next... we strongly suggest you #visitidaho! @visitidaho #sponsored

👉 Trail Tuesday Review & Giveaway! It’s backcountry season and one of the things that can ruin a beautiful backcountry trip is… bugs! I @Im_NicoleMarie have been using the Picaridin bug repellent from @sawyerproducts for many years now because it is DEET free! The Picaridin bug repellent is a synthetic replica of a natural solution derived from piperine in pepper plants. It is proven to be an effective and potent formula against mosquitoes, ticks, and flies. Picaridin is also effective against the Yellow Fever Mosquito, which can transmit the Zika Virus. Picaridin spray is effective for up to 12 hours against mosquitoes and ticks, while the lotion is effective for up to 14 hours, and now there are wipes too- for targeted application! Each of the Picaridin products from @sawyerproducts also provide up to 8 hours of protection against biting flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies. The non-greasy spray and lotion have a low odor that evaporates when dry and it won’t damage your gear or clothes!
Today and just in time for your next backpacking adventure we’re giving one lucky woman who hikes a $100 prize package from @sawyerproducts with everything you need to protect yourself from bugs in the backcountry!
👇TO WIN

“Instagram vs Reality... Yes, I have all the smiling photos, posed and poised on the summit. And then there’s this one, and it’s my favorite. This photo so perfectly captures the moment I came over the top. Joy and Gratitude. All at once, all overwhelming. Smiles. Tears. High Fives. This is as good as it gets, my friends.” - @crfabacher
