My parents grew up hanging out on this bridge and some of my fondest memories were made on this bridge.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
