Growing up in the small state of New Hampshire I had big opportunities to hike and explore the White Mountains in my backyard! Climbing mountains and skiing every week with my parents helped shape my need to explore and adventure now.
Hello all, my name is Heather
A little background
Why I moved to Utah
After college I took the big move that many others have and headed west and settled into Park City, Utah. On a whim with a friend I moved here which is how Utah came to be. Originally we were gunning for somewhere in Colorado but that just did not pan out, and I am so glad it didn't. After announcing my upcoming move to Park City in Fall of 2013 my father laughed and explained how on family vacation a decade before I said I was going to live their some day. I couldn't even recall this, but it came true. Now I spend most weekends partaking in some form of exploration from hiking in the Unitas and Wasatch mountains, to skiing at one of the awesome nearby resorts, or camping in the deserts of Southern Utah.
My Fur Children
As an extreme dog lover who also fosters animals, it should come as no shock that I have three furry friends to explore the Great American West with! The pack includes Ghundor, Maya, and Watz. Ghundor is my 8 year old Alaskan Malamute is as stubborn as can be but loves to run wild through the great outdoors. Maya is my 3 year old rottweiler/husky mix and is a self-proclaimed princess and lover of chasing rabbits. Watz, also known as Watson, is a 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix who we affectionately refer to as our forever puppy.
My Adventure Partner
My partner in crime for all things adventure is my boyfriend Thomas. You can find him scaling a mountain or talking gut bacteria in the kitchen as it relates to food that we eat. He is the chef of the house and chef of the outdoors helping keep us fueled for anything. Also since I could just talk for hours on road trips he provides the tunes, podcasts, and audio books for our treks.
I hope to share with you all my outdoor adventuring lifestyle. Please use this as a source to hiking guides around Utah, traveling the West, and for outdoor tips and info.
