An Interview with the Top Goat (via

The Top Goat (Molly Ward) on the trail with her dog Ella.A week ago, my childhood friend and colleague in the “get outside” industry, Rebecca Walsh posted a fabulous interview with…ME! Rebecca runs Hike Like a Woman–a website and community of “Outdoor Women Inspiring One Another”, and also Just Trails (along with her husband), which provides hiking tips, navigation clinics and cool trail decks. Check out her websites and “like” Hike Like a Woman and Just Trails on Facebook, too. She gets outside hiking or skiing just about everyday with her two young sons–impressive! She had so many good questions for me that the interview ended up being a two-part affair. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Just a kid--Molly backpacking with her dad back in the day...Take a look if you are interested in Outdoor Science Education or if you would like some ideas for getting the most out of hiking (and actually moving down the trail) with kids. Enjoy!
