about me

I’m Shari, but you may also know me as @thedeputyshariff on Instagram.

Unfortunately, I am no real deputy of the law and my nickname from childhood has followed me into my 30’s and for whatever reason — it stuck. I currently work in an office which allows me ample time to come here and bust out my weekend adventures and edit pictures. Formally a bartender and a lover of staying busy, I’ve found that blogging has really helped me settle down in the “real world” and given me something to do with all this free time. More importantly, it keeps my mind occupied.

Through pictures and hitting the mountain trails personally, I aim to provide a more in depth view of local parks in my home state of NC for the residents to enjoy. I am here to give motivation to others so that you want to get out there for yourself. As an avid hiker I hope to provide answers and insight into things many people have no idea about. It can range between a plethora of things but all relate to hiking, camping, and the obvious… BEING OUTSIDE. I will also find myself traveling a lot (thankful for friends in many places), so I will share and document those journey’s as well. I am literally everywhere, and nowhere all at the same time.

Documenting this journey is new to me, so if you have any feedback, advice, or want to share your story with me, I will always welcome it.
