Hello, welcome to Hiking Misadventures!
I’m Nalini (she/her). I’m a grants manager at a nonprofit that focuses on youth development by day and an outdoor enthusiast by weekend. Whether I’m tending to my balcony garden, walking in parks in my hometown of the Washington, D.C. area, hiking iconic trails in National Parks, or carrying everything I need for a week or six-month long backpacking trip, I love spending time in the outdoors (and sharing stories of everything that goes wrong during my adventures).
As you explore this site, I hope you find some laughs, useful information to plan your next outdoor adventure, and most importantly inspiration to get outside!
