Where is your favorite place to camp?

Havasupai Falls in the Grand Canyon! It is super beautiful and surrounded by several amazing waterfalls. I highly recommend it because you have to tap into your super-adventurous side and backpack around 10 miles one way! It makes it super rewarding once you arrive at the camp sitepai Falls in the Grand Canyon! It is super beautiful and surrounded by several amazing waterfalls.

Hobbies: rock climbing, hiking, camping, wildlife photography and, more recently, mountain biking,

What is one interesting activity you are involved in this semester?

I’ve been volunteering at Liberty since June of this summer. It’s an awesome experience to work with the wildlife they have there, which usually consists of a variety of different birds. I do a lot of work on their “rehabilitation” side, which consists of enclosure maintenance, feeding, etc. More recently I have been working in the ICU, which is awesome because I actually get to handle the wildlife. This includes handling great-horned owls, kestrels, falcons, and very, very messy ducks.

Fun fact: My dog Duke has an Instagram that has almost 900 followers! His pictures are outdoorsy as he loves to tag along on our camping and hiking trips!22343664_1645092358843818_1914218927_o.jpg
