Hey y’all! My name is Phoebe, and I’m from Denver. I’m super excited to meet everyone and start the trip in a few days! Growing up in Colorado I’ve developed an intense love for all things outdoors, especially hiking, but I’ve never been camping or backpacking for more than a few days so I’m pumped to be spending 2 months living outside. I’m also really interested to learn more about the land and water issues of the West – I feel the western narratives that I’ve been exposed to haven’t given me a very good understanding of the complex issues that the region faces.
Some things about me: I really like reading (been getting into some of the recommended books from the course manual), playing soccer, jazz, and doing crossword puzzles. Can’t wait to meet you all so soon!
