Hi Huntsvillians, Alabamians and worldwide web surfers! I'm Kinsey Russell. Thank you for reading Our Valley Events as well as the outdoor blog section! Growing up in Huntsville, I never thought that I would return to the Rocket City after college; however, here I am, leading women's hikes for a nonprofit ministry, freelance writing for a few local magazines and marketing/working for the beloved Merrimack Hall Performing Arts Center. On any given day, one could find me rummaging in a thrift store/junk shop, belaying at the indoor climbing gym, or scaling the rock walls outside at one of the climbing crags in the Southeastern area. What a beautiful city we live in! Feel free to email me with positive suggestions and feedback, upcoming outdoor/adventure events, or even outdoor gear tips and questions! Thanks for the read! Happy trails and forever footsloggin'!
