Start Here

↟Welcome to Prone to Wandering 

My name is Kate Hurley, and I am excited you have landed here- because that means you are a fellow adventurer and (hopefully!) ready to start exploring.

If you love the outdoors, you’ve come to the right place.

Prone to Wandering is an outdoor adventure blog about hiking, camping and adventure travel.

I want to help you explore your passion for the outdoors. Life is short! We should make the most out of our time to appreciate the little things that life gives us. We need to take the opportunities that come. Discard the plans that don’t work out. Soak up the sunrises, the storms, the summits, and the victories. Enjoy the journey and forget about the numbers. This is what it’s all about.

I currently have been living in the heart of the Rocky Mountains for over a year. I have always loved hiking and camping and have been eagerly exploring the world around me since I was 5 and set up “survival shelters” in the backyard. I began this blog a year ago to find a place to express my passion for pure exploration. In that time, I have crawled over the landscape that surrounds me, discovered a new love for scrambling and route-finding, and have been pushing the limits of my new capabilities.

I am excited to share my journey with you- a journey of learning, and of sharing. This is a safe space for explorers of all walks of life, and all skill levels. Lets explore our passions, and get excited about discovery!
