My name is Red Riding Hood, aka Ella Raff. I come from Oxford/Cambridge in the UK. I moved to the Pacific Northwest after hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and truly falling for the Cascades. I am obsessed with pedestrianism in every form, nutella, and Lemony Snicket. As one of my best friends put it, I went from ‘posh to putrid’, and this blog chronicles my attempt to balance my real world life with as many adventures as I can squeeze in.
