My name is Olya Andronova. I am Information Systems Specialist, climber, hiker, skier, former EMT-B living in California. This blog is a collection of different things I have learned on the trail while visiting, working and living in national parks. Wilderness safety, is something I feel strongly passionate about. Things I write might be a common sense to a lot of people. However, there are a lot of folks out there who might not be as knowledgeable when it comes to being safe in the wilderness. I hope my blog will inspire you to get out, explore, and provide you some personal safety tips to keep in mind. Always take safety precautions when hiking in the wilderness.
