I had the pleasure of visiting one of my favorite places in the world, Glacier National Park. It was August of 2011 and the passes had just lost their last grip of winter.
I took this trip with my good friend Marnee Banks. It was just us two for three days. We passed by two lakes, two passes and a ton of wildlife. Gunsight Lake was a spectacle! The basin above it was filled with waterfalls, hanging snow fields and lush greenery. Our first night was spent at Gunsight Lake and our second was at Lake Ellen Wilson — quite possibly the most beautiful campsite in the whole park!
Early on I found fulfillment in extreme sports. Pursuing any and all excuses to get out and explore. I still have that same passion for the outdoors, especially mountain biking and skiing, but after six years in the newspaper industry, my focus turned to the under-represented, undiscovered people and places of the world.
