About Erin


Erin Roll (that’s the blogger) has been hiking since before she could walk – at least, according to her parents. (Some of it involved riding in a toddler backpack on Mom’s back during a 5K run in Anchorage.) Since then, she’s covered a fair bit of square mileage – on foot, bike wheel, hoof and zipline – in locales such as Alaska, Canada, a good-sized chunk of the Eastern Seaboard, Texas, Arizona, the Virgin Islands, England, Scotland and Ireland. (Not quite in that order, but you get the idea.)

The second child and only daughter in a family that’s rather prone to wanderlust, Erin was born in Alaska, grew up in Virginia and now lives in New Jersey – where she relocated, against all common sense, after graduating from college in 2008. She is a journalist and photographer, with 23 New Jersey Press Association awards under her belt as of 2017, and she is finishing up a master’s degree in English at Montclair State University. In addition to hiking and other outdoorsy pursuits, Erin likes progressive rock (Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Genesis, Rush), Indian food and science fiction.
