About Blissful Hiker

What do running shoes sound like on loose scree? How does it feel to be alone as the sun sets over a vast mountain range? Can you describe the taste of water from cascading falls, how the earth smells after rain, what the wind looks like?

My name is Alison Young and I am the Blissful Hiker. My feet have tread upon much of the world – with oh, so much more of it still to explore! My artistic practice reflects an enduring curiosity in how we perceive this wondrous world around us, particularly through sound.

I've been sharing from my thru-hikes of both New Zealand's Te Araroa and the United State's Pacific Crest Trail and this June, I'll be walking the Continental Divide Trail from the Canadian Border in Montana to the Mexican border in New Mexico

For 13 years, I was a host at American Public Media and sparked listeners’ imaginations by painting pictures with my voice, kind of like having a picture book read aloud. These days, I am taking the sounds I collect while thru-hiking and combining them with personal essays in my own voice for the podcast, Blissful Hiker ❤︎ Walking the World. 

As a subscriber on my Patreon site, you will play a major role in helping me in developing my story-telling skills and learning to produce exceptional work. In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive Q&A checkins along the trail, reserved only for Patreon patrons. 

I am forever grateful to you for joining me on this unique, artistic adventure! 
Kia kaha and happy trails, Blissful
