"Some of my favorite hiking memories were here in Death Valley with my girls!" Megan Fisher, Sawyer Ambassador.

"One of my favorite memories was in Death Valley. The girls and their good friend Max found these glorious hills to climb all by themselves. It was so empowering for them because they did it alone and I could still keep an eye on them. They climbed so high and then ran down barren sandy hills that softened their falls. 

That image will stay in my mind forever. In that moment, I didn't feel fear, I felt proud. I was proud of their independence. I wondered if they felt like Queens and Kings on the mountaintop as they looked down over us from so high above.  

I have felt how nature heals my family. Nature is our church and our medicine. It is full of surprises and gifts of ever-changing glorious sunsets and tall grasses to run through. Nature is our best friend."
