Unzipped! Featuring Texas Wadsworth
What is your passion? My passion is outdoor adventure and landscape photography. I just love scenic vistas, waterfalls, and mountainous regions.
What would be your superpower? I would love super strength. It would make carrying a backpack so much easier.
What makes you proud to be a woman? Because we are pretty incredible. We can climb mountains, be powerhouses of industry, write wondrous stories, or be phenomenal athletes while growing a tiny human. No man can do that.
What made you fall in love with adventure and the outdoors? Lake Isabelle in Indian Peak Wilderness near Ward, Colorado. It was my first long hike, 8 miles and 9 hours, but once I saw that view of the lake nestled within the mountains, I was hooked.
What one piece of advice would you give your Zip Hers Sisters? It’s ok to hike slow, it may take a bit more logistic work and longer to get to the summit, but you still get to see the view.
If you could walk and talk with 3 women, who would they be?
- Isabella Bird, 1831-1904, a British photographer, author of A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains, and explorer.
- Eliza Skidmore, 1856-1928, first woman to have a photo published in National Geographic.
- Annie Smith Peck, 1850-1935, mountaineer and traveler who encouraged others to travel and explore.
What are 3 words that describe you? Easy-going, determined, and approachable.
Who's an artist on your adventure playlist? Darius Rucker, I just love the sound of his voice and he’s pretty nice to look at too.
What's your go-to snack? I should say something healthy like trail mix, fresh fruits, but my go-to is Mike and Ike candy. I always have some with me on my long hikes and backpacking trips.
