Mary Morton

Mary is an Explorer Chick Guide who prioritizes seeing a little more of the world every day. In her 17 years as a seasonal road-warrior nomad, she has hiked in all 50 states, lived in 9 (PA, MD, VA, ME, OR, NM, MT, CA, and currently CO), and is well on her way to standing on 1,000 summits. She celebrated both her 30th and 40th birthdays at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and has thru-hiked the John Muir Trail and section-hiked the Continental Divide Trail. Internationally, she’s trodded the Inca Trail, Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast Trail, and ski-toured to hot springs in Iceland. Last summer she began learning the ancient art of equine-supported backcountry travel with her two handsome mules, Astro and Zorro. Mary is a Wilderness First Responder and former ski patroller. When she’s not hiking, riding, or skiing, Mary makes her living as a freelance science and travel writer, specializing in geology and adventure travel.
