“Staying Safe While Solo” Feat: Laura M Clark
Laura M Clark – ‘Wild Wanderer’, adventurer and outdoor enthusiast, summited all 58 of Colorado’s 14ers solo. With additional solo summits of duplicate 14ers, more than sixty 13ers, dozens of lesser peaks and hikes throughout the Pikes Peak region, Laura is passionate about her goal — to inspire and motivate herself and others to find adventure in the outdoors.  Backpacker, highpointer, traveler and outdoor enthusiast, Laura leads international high adventure youth expeditions and teaches outdoor survival skills to all female teams competing in statewide survival competitions.
Laura is an adventurer, and she blogs:

 Laura’s focus for this presentation is for participants to leave feeling like they learned something about hiking solo they couldn’t have learned from a Google search.  Through sharing tips and real life examples, her goal is to empower individuals, and especially women, to safely and confidently hike alone or with a friend.  Topics covered include but aren’t limited to:
·         Before you go
·         Gear for the solo hiker
·         4 legged creatures
·         2 legged creatures
·         Self Awareness
·         Terrain and Weather
·         Night hiking
·         Winter hiking
