Ariel has been living off grid in a tiny house nestled into the western mountains of Wyoming, a little over 6000 feet above sea level for six years now. She splits her own wood for heat, carries water by hand, uses a composting toilet, and attempts to grow as much of her own food as possible between the weather and wildlife she's surrounded by.
As a child, she was fortunate enough to be able to spend much of her free time exploring and playing in the woods. Little has changed now that she older. She moved to a place with a bigger woods and still enjoys spending her time outside hiking, gardening, and photographing the natural world.
As the eldest of seven children who grew up in a homeschooling family Ariel had the opportunity, not always appreciated at the time, to learn to do quite a bit of work. She's enjoyed a wide range of jobs, everything from greenhouses and flower arranging, to wilderness therapy with teens, to milking cows.
Mostly, she enjoys doing the kinds of things that try to provide a real service or value to others. Some of her other hobbies include backpacking, hosting people, cooking, preserving food, anything to do with nutrition, skiing, reading, journalling, and sitting around a fire and talking to close friends.
