Finding Adventure • Building Each Other Up • Exploring the Places We Love


Hi! I’m glad you found your way to Right Kind Of Lost. I’m Mara, and I love adventure travel. I also love sharing my travels with everyone. National parks, national forests, and other public lands are my favorite places to renew myself. I am in love with the wilderness. Hiking, camping, backpacking, kayaking, and taking on new challenges are some of my favorite things in life.

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up …”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

If you are in Arkansas or thinking of coming to Arkansas, I would love for you to join the Arkansas Hikers Facebook Group. It is a place where we can give trail conditions, or simply share stories about hiking in the Natural State.

If are a woman and looking for a hiking group, check of Hike Like A Woman’s Local Hiking Groups. There, they do monthly group hikes!

Please like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

National parks offer so much to do, and it can be intimidating when you only have a limited time to visit a park. If you only have two days to spend in a park, there really is no way to see it all. That is why I have created a series of blog posts to show you the highlights of the national parks that I have visited.

If you are looking to visit a national park on a limit time, check out these suggested itineraries. Sometimes you just don’t have all the time in the world. But that shouldn’t stop you from visiting.
