I am Penelope Allen. I live in Portland Oregon, and I am an eighth grader at Arbor School. Every kid in my grade must complete a year long independent project, and I immediately knew I wanted to do something involving exploring Oregon. I love exploring the outdoors where I live and I wanted to to do something to share my love with others. I spend most of my free weekends hiking and exploring mostly around the gorge. I also spend a lot of time researching and finding hikes to do. I thought it would be fun to make my own website that helps people find hikes. I tried to target this website towards kids my age. I want to help them love the Pacific Northwest as much as I do. I took a few of my friends on a couple hikes, and I think they liked it more than they thought. I hope I have created an easy and fun way for people to find there own adventure.
