One of the places I like to hike is in The Columbia River Gorge just east of Portland, Oregon. I just love all the waterfalls and wildflowers along the trail system. Oregon also has tons of beautiful spots to hike, including the breathtaking coastline. Merrell footwear would sure cushion my feet and keep me steady on narrow trails.

I've always been fascinated by the amazing ruins along the Inca Trail!! My dream is to go to Peru . My feet would lead me from Cusco to Machu Pichu. This four day hike combines my love of history and fitness in one breathtaking trip to one of the great Wonders of the World!

I'm super excited for warmer weather and can't wait to go for runs on the beach with my best gal pal and my pet lab in a pair of Merrel Barefoot shoes! There's so much great weather coming up and I'm looking forward to seeing where my feet will lead :)

We would love our feet to lead us along with our 3 daughters exploring through the wilderness in Choconut, PA. In total we have 8 nieces and nephews who spend the summer exploring the trails. We are in complete delight when children find and learn about creatures. We have found varieties of salamanders, newts, frogs, toads, and snakes. We have even made games of treasure hunting for new animals or wilderness objects. Merrell's make these adventures much safer and easier on these little feet! We appreciate taking us into consideration for this contest. I hope we win to protect these little feet with Merrell's and make adventure walks so much more comfortable. Get out there and explore! Thanks 8 little feet!

I live in one of the most outdoor friendly areas of the country: the black hills. I love to spend my free time hiking and camping throughout them. In nicer weather, I also enjoy mountain biking and trail running.

I would love for my feet to lead me to my first marathon! I was hoping to run the Chicago one in October, but it is sold out. I would love to do either a Disney one around the park or the Nike Women's Marathon in San Fransisco. My feet have been through so much--you walk around all day, not even including extra exercise!

I love travel so it's hard to choose one place but right now I'd like my feet to lead me to Australia.

My feet would take me to hike around Maccu Piccho and the Incan ruins. I love hiking and backpacking and I've never had the opportunity to do it in South America. Peru tops my list of countries I must explore before I'm too have an active outdoor adventure!

The world is so vast and ever changing that it is so hard to pick just one place and if I had my choice I would want to go everywhere. But I will try to narrow it down just a tad. I would love to be able to explore my own "backyard" and when I say backyard I mean the Rockies and midwest area of the US. I would find it so adventurous to explore, hike, and climb all around this area and be able to have memories for a lifetime. And not only that but feel amazing that I was able to experience what part of our country really was at one point. Wild and beautiful. I love to be outside and new gear is always helpful in that goal. :)

I would love to go explore Alaska or go back to Hawaii. I'd be happy going anywhere really.

I love nothing more than when my feet lead me up and down a twisty mountain trail. It would be amazing if that trail ended up on a secluded beach, but in landlocked Arkansas that's not a possiblity. So, really just a beach. Anywhere with a beach.

My current exploration dream is to take my boyfriend to Europe. We would absolutely love to go during the tour de france to catch a bit of that. But ever since I went for the first time in 2009, my itch to further explore the coast of Italy, Greece and the alps in Switzerland keeps getting stronger. Especially since it's almost the time I left for that trip just 2 yrs ago. Those Merrell shoes look not only stylish, but comfy even as a minimalist shoe.

If I could go anywhere... I'd go everywhere!! I've been saving up since college graduation and just bought my first international plane ticket - I'll be going to Barcelona and then driving up the Coast of France with my boyfriend. Hopefully there will be so many amazing stops along the way - a beautiful Parc de Montjuic, the Pyrenees, and the entire scenery of the Cote d'Azur! I first discovered a love of running/walking about four years ago after a small leg surgery - there was a path along a creek nearby where I lived that I fell head over heels for. Now I make it a goal to check out new paths and trails everywhere I go - and my boyfriend and I have been trying out any trail we can find in the North Dallas area (seriously... we will be driving and one of us will point and say 'hey look, a new trail to try! LOL). I'm especially excited to try out 'Hiking & Yoga on the Katy Trail' which I just signed up for - the trail goes right through the heart of Dallas. Some favorite locations I've visited recently would be my first official hike which was in Tennessee - Ramsey Cascades **absolutely stunning** waterfall once you get to the top! and all the great trails in Hilton Head. Really, I think what matters is that you're getting outside, being active, and appreciating nature. It's great that companies such as Merrell are working to motivate people to enjoy the outdoors :)
