Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
North Dakota is a vastly underrated state; as a result, it’s rarely ever crowded here, and our hiking trails are often pretty quiet. A hiking trail spans 4,800 miles across eight states, beginning in Vermont and ending right here in our own backyards at Lake Sakakawea State Park. It’s the famed North Country National Scenic Trail, and 225 miles of it are all ours. Come check out one of the best hikes in North Dakota that happens to be one of the best hikes in seven other states, too!
