Growing up in Utah makes it hard to not fall in love with camping and hiking! Lucky for me my parents got me out at a young age and I've been enjoying trails and campsites all across the west since I was little girl!
There's just something special about making some dinner over a fire and going to sleep with the sounds of the great outdoors so close to you. Over the years I have done all kinds of camping from backpacking to car camping. Most nights at camp these days I will sleep in the built out bed in the back of my truck, but I always bring a tent just in case and stay current on backpacking gear since that's a hobby of mine as well!
As for hiking, although it will always have a special place in my heart, I have really fallen in love with trail running over the last few years and that's been a great way to explore since it's basically just hiking - but a little faster!
At this point I've built up quite a supply of knowledge about different camping and hiking tips and tricks and knowledge, and nothing makes me more stoked than sharing that with other people as a means to let them get outside and explore as much as I have been able to! Drop in with any questions and I'd be happy to chat!
