In this episode, Courtney talks with author and hiker, Andrea "Hey Mom" Lani. They talk about taking hot food for granted (especially when you are cold and wet), seeing the playfulness bloom in her kids on trail, and she answers the question: "What is it like to drag your family along, uphill both ways?"
Andrea Lani is the author of Uphill Both Ways: Hiking Toward Happiness on the Colorado Trail (Bison Books, 2022), a book about hiking the Colorado Trail with her husband and three children and examining the environmental legacy of Westward Expansion. In the book and in her essays and short fiction, Andrea delights in the wonder of nature and probes the emotional effects of environmental damage and contamination. Her writing has appeared in Orion, Brain, Child Magazine, Spire, Willows Wept Review, Saltfront, Snowy Egret, The Maine Review, Zoomorphic, and About Place Journal, among others. Andrea is a graduate of College of the Atlantic and the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast MFA program, a senior editor at Literary Mama, and a Maine Master Naturalist. She lives in Maine with her family.
