Interact, Explore, Connect...Enjoy Safely
What is SMH?
Our main goal
What are the Adirondacks like?
Upon reaching Aunt Jo's residence, Ivy decided to stay with her hermit aunt for two days to acquire Josephine's perspective of her past. Mountain Mama left Ivy at Josephine’s residence and promised to be back in 2 days. Eventually, Jo opened up to her niece, and their relationship not only formed, but also improved.
In the early morning of the day Mama was scheduled to pick Ivy up, there was a very strong blizzard, and a tree fell on Aunt Josephine’s cabin and crushed it. Ivy had to think fast and make the important decisions, as her aunt was half-unconscious most of the time, due to her possibly fatal injury. Ivy and her aunt survived, but Ivy never wanted anyone to experience isolation, pain, or a burden like that at all in their lives, so she founded this organization for the plenty of especially young hikers who could use this program's advice.
