The Adventuress is a blog for women with adventurous spirits.
It's a source of inspiration, planning, tips, and advice from experienced travelers and outdoor adventurers
with the extra flair of being for women and by women only.


The Western United States offers some of the most varied scenery of anywhere in the world. Not surprisingly the possibilities for outdoor adventure are just as diverse. Be awed byAlaska's wilderness, hike and kayak in the San Juan Islands, get in touch with your inner cowgirl on aWyoming ranch vacation, raft and hike Oregon's Rogue River, or immerse yourself in the rich medley of New Mexico's three cultures. You can even experience true alpine backpacking in the Snowy Mountains. Many of our western trips take place in National Parks so check out that page too.
