I’m Ryan 👋
Since a young age, I’ve been searching for all the best hikes this world has to offer us. Here I am recently just after an incredible sunrise at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah.
How did I
The first hikes I can remember are all with my dad. Growing up in California’s Central Valley, I was always just a couple hours away from either the beach or the mountains… and with Yosemite in our backyard, we chose the mountains.
My dad was wired for adventure and he wasn’t afraid of driving for 12 hours straight, several days in a row to set his eyes on the best views. By time I was in college, my adventures (and many roadtrips with my dad) had taken me across all 50 U.S. states. I’ll be forever grateful that he gave me the gift of seeing the beauty our world has to offer.
Here we are at the Grand Canyon back in 2012. The morning after this photo was taken, we hiked down to the bottom of the canyon and rafted down the Colorado River for 7 days without cell reception.
These are memories I’ll never forget. These are the kinds of experiences that’ve immortalized hiking in nature as not only a connection I share with my late dad, but as a grounding experience that ties me back to the Earth & myself along with it. So, I want to invite you to come hike with me.
