Bethy The VT Hiker

The outdoors is my happy place. I love to hike, backpack, cave, kayak and camp! I'm always up for an adventure, from the Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal to backpacking in the Adirondack high peaks... I'm there!

Derek MacDonald

​Most of my activities recently include running + hiking. I've finished several ultramarathons including the Vermont 100, which was my 1st 100 mile event. I'm working on completing the list of 46, 4000+ ft peaks in the Adirondaks (currently on #39 of 46). I enjoy traveling and have visited 33 countries, and many of our US National parks. I also enjoy gravel biking, back country/alpine skiing and spending time on the water.

My favorite activities include long distance hiking, technical hiking, winter hiking (any form of walking outside really!), kayaking, canoeing, canyoneering, climbing, road trips, photography, reading and writing! So far my favorite accomplishment is my journey climbing Mt. Shasta this summer while on the Pacific Crest Trail. It was one of the hardest 7.5 miles I have ever done and I’ve walked over 4,400 miles in the last two summers. Shasta was not only mentally challenging but physically as well.  It was a journey of pushing my own comfortability and trusting my instincts.


Gabby Palko

Some of my favorite activities include backcountry skiing, photography, meditation, and sailing. I love exploring our local wilderness, spending peaceful time in the outdoors, and helping other find their place in the outdoors! One of my biggest accomplishments is living on my 25' sailboat in Alaska for four years. These years were challenging but rewarding.
