After falling down the inevitable rabbit hole that is Instagram, I ran across Cierra Nicole’s account, @cierra_nicolem, and loved what she was doing. An advocate of getting outdoors, a high school counselor, and an explorer of North Carolina, we figured she would be a great Weekend Warrior to get to know! Without further ado, meet Cierra.

What does weekend warrior mean to you?
I am ALWAYS on the move throughout the week – whether it be for work, church, relationships or other obligations. So I have become intentional in filling my weekends with mini-adventures. I do not always have to go on an extravagant trip, as I’m providing myself with a break do things for ME!
What does being outdoors DO to you?
As a high school counselor, I spend the majority of my time pouring into the lives of my students. Being outdoors offers me the chance to refill my own cup and recoup from the week. I’ve found that hiking and kayaking provide me with an opportunity to unplug from the grind and recharge for the upcoming week.
Where is your next adventure?
Next weekend I will be traveling two hours to Asheville, North Carolina to hike in Dupont State Forest. They have a trail that offers incredible views of three waterfalls. I am excited to check it out!
Thanks for sharing with us, Cierra, and maybe one day we will meet up at Asheville (one of our favorite places to be!) and have a mini adventure!
