I am a 29-year-old middle school science teacher living in St. Louis, Missouri. I’m not native to this area… I was spawned from the rolling, boulder studded landscapes of the Northeast– Born and raised in New Hampshire and then tossed around from New York to Massachusetts to Maine to New York again.
I love mountains. I remember my Dad leading the three Powers kids up Crotched Mountain in Francestown, NH, teaching us to traverse when it got too steep or tiresome. The mountains of Lake Placid, NY still feel like home to me and I hope to go home to them some day again.
… and I hate when they get blown up.
In the city now, I am always looking for ways to go back to the woods and the hills. This time the Big Ride is going to take me there!
