From the Heart

We all make mistakes. Mistakes are not a bad thing, we learn from our mistakes. And we also help others from our experience.


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.

Outdoor Ethics

Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics teaches us how to adventure outdoors respectfully to wild spaces, wildlife, and other visitors.

Leave No Trace gives us seven principles to live by so that we can assure the wonderful wild spaces can be enjoyed by future generation. The principle include: 1. Plan Ahead and Prepare, 2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces, 3. Dispose of Waste Properly, 4. Leave What You Find, 5. Minimize Campfire Impact, 6. Respect Wildlife, and 7. Respect Other Visitors.

You can read about each principle in my outdoor ethic portion of the website.

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.

Please like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
