Welcome to Appalachian Love. I'm Kayla DeVault, an American Indian engineering/French student from Case Western Reserve University. I grew up in the mountains of Pennsylvania and only ever feel at home in the woods. My father is an engineer who grew up on a beef farm and my mom is a forester whose mother was a full-time gardener and a huge inspiration in my life. Here I intend to share stories and information about my favorite things in life (besides hockey): mountains, cooking, nature, photography, cats, living off the land, and cherishing my ancestors' stories.
