My name is Jenny Abegg. I love mountains, climbing, friends, and vanlife, and this is where I write about it all.
I know I’m fully alive when my feet are dirty, my hands are a bit scraped up, and my muscles are slightly sore. When I eat every meal out of the same bowl, with the same spoon. When I’m constantly growing and learning, and chasing after the next challenge. I love my climbing-partners-turned-best-buds, and dreaming and scheming and sharing life with others. Simplicity. Wild places. Living close to the earth and to myself. Climbing is the medium, right now at least. This is the good life, and boy do I love it.
Kristina was just featured as a SheJumps “Jumper” and works for the Mountaineers, one of SheJumps awesome partners for Youth Initiatives in Seattle. “Most people know me as ‘that girl who skis in a tutu.’ I also climb in a tutu. And run in a tutu. And skydive in a tutu. And influence my friends to ski and climb and run and skydive in tutus, or whatever else makes them happy. Because life would be better if we wore more tutus. Born and raised in Montana, I like to joke that I basically came out of the womb in ski boots. SheJumps has provided me with a community of ladies where I most feel at home – where I can embrace my love of being ridiculous and find support to realize my dreams.”
Dianne grew up in West Seattle. Dianne fell in love with travel as an adult, spending two years teaching English as a Second Language in Turkey, where, in her spare time she could explore areas in the Mediterranean and Middle East. When she returned to Seattle, she participated in a Mountaineer hike. It changed her life. She joined The Mountaineers, and began hiking, learned how to ski, both downhill and cross-country. She worked days for the State, and volunteered evenings and weekends with The Mountaineers. She took Beginning and Intermediate Climbing Courses, became the second female Climbing Committee Chairperson, and eventually the first female President of The Mountaineers. She has climbed and led climbs on the six major peaks in Washington State. She climbed Mt. Whitney in California, the three major volcanoes in Mexico, and Mt. Elbrus in Russia. She has climbed many of the rock routes in the Cascades and Olympics. She is a hiker, climber, bicyclist, skier, snow-boarder, snow-shoer, kayaker and world traveler. She loves the outdoors, and loves to lead.
