063 Jessi Owens on Paddling
Jessi Owens came to the Pacific Northwest about 13 years ago. She started out enjoying the mountains, hiking her way through some novice spots and working her way into climbing.
She is now focused heavily on Paddling, though she still climbs. She has a goal to circumnavigate every island in the San Juan Islands that has a name. When we recorded the show, she had paddled around 62 of the 120 islands.
She also talks about women in the wilderness by themselves. It is a big subject, especially for me to talk about, since I am not a woman. Jessi would like to encourage women to get out on the trail!
