In this episode, Courtney has a conversation with Anna "Mud Butt" Huthmaker about the hiking community that she created, Trail Dames. They explore the concept of how we can, and do, support each other on the trail so that we can experience the growth that exploring the outdoors has to offer. Anna and Courtney ask the question: "Does it take a village to hike a trail?"

In 2003, Anna Huthmaker hiked 700 miles on the Appalachian Trail and realized that nobody on the trail looked like her. She returned home and formed the Trail Dames. She wanted a group for “women of a curvy nature.”

ALL women are now welcome in the Trail Dames and Anna’s podcast reflects the supportive nature of women who hike. If you’d like to know more about the Trail Dames organization, click on the link below, but NOT before you listen to Anna!!

The Trail Dames mission is to welcome, empower, and educate women of all shapes, sizes, and experience and fitness levels to responsibly explore nature. TD accomplishes this by offering safe and supportive activities that promote personal growth, friendship, self-confidence, self-reliance, and a love of the outdoors.
