Alison Glowinski

Alison is one of the co-founders of Happy People Hike and squad leader over here. In fact, she came up with the phrase Happy People Hike during her first big hiking trip when she realized how joyful everyone was on the trail. “Everyone we’ve met is so happy. It’s like…happy people hike!”

Even though she currently lives in the city, she spends every possible moment outside. If you ever get the honor of hiking or camping with her you’ll find out she’s always cold, always lost and falls a lot. But she is also always laughing and having “the best day ever!”

Her favorite part of Happy People Hike is the connections she’s made, both in person and online. She loves hearing people’s stories and learning from others. With a life goal to visit all of the National Parks, she is looking forward to meeting all sorts of new friends on the trails!

‘m not sure I love calling us part of the “fashion” industry, but I guess we are. Our gear is meant to be fun, functional, and I suppose as fashionable as you can get when it comes to hiking t-shirts. It’s not that I don’t like fashion, it’s the entire “fast fashion” industry that leaves me feeling less than good.
