Women in the Wild

Howling Shores’ purpose is to cultivate a safe community that empowers, educates, and encourages women (and lgbtqi+ individuals) in the outdoors by sharing personal stories, instilling confidence, sharing resources, and simply building a community of badass ladies, no matter age, life experience, or background.

Through these stories, photos, and relationships, we hope to promote growth of all kind and support all outdoor goals while surrounding ourselves with like minded women who inspire us to become better individuals. 

Howling Shores has reached out to women that have inspired and empowered their community. Here are their stories on being a lady in the outdoor world – whether they share their struggles of finding the confidence to hop on a bike for the first time or their achievements of finishing the Iditarod – We hope you find yourself inspired to get outside and overcome anything that stands in the way of you becoming your best self! (and a badass b****!!!)
