Happy 2020! This was the first time that I used the One Second Everyday app to record the events of the year. I really enjoyed the experience, it gave me a reason to capture memories of friends, places visited, days at home, and work at my consulting company, Trails Inspire. If you’d like more frequent updates on my wanderings, follow me on Instagram at @desertsirena and @trailsinspire. I’d recommend watching the video below full-screen.

Thanks to my sponsors, Gossamer Gear, Huppybar and Purple Rain Adventure Skirts for providing me food and gear for my adventures and travels, and thanks to Wilderness Press and the Arizona Office of Tourism for support on my book, which will be released in the Spring. And as always, grateful for my husband Brian’s support of my hopes and dreams.
This year, I am grateful to have visited the ancestral lands of the Tohono and Akimel O’odham, Yaqui, Chiricahua Apache, Western Apache, Havasupai, Hopi, Hualapai, Navajo Nation, and the Yavapai-Apache, Ute and Cheyenne.
Looking forward to putting together my book tour, doing more sections of my Grand Canyon Traverse (hopefully this is the decade I complete it), and trail design and development projects in 2020. Thanks to all who have followed along! If you’re looking for a retrospective about the last decade, check out my post on Ten Years of Sirena’s Wanderings.
