Hi all!. I’m Aaron, and I’m from Greenwich, Connecticut. I can’t believe that I will get to see you all in one week! I’ve done a bunch of long backpacking trips before, so I’m used to sleeping outside under the stars. However, I haven’t been out west much, so I’m super excited to see the Rockies and even the Grand Canyon! I’m also excited to rafting , which I have never done before. As I am into environmentalism and climate change advocacy and science, I interested in seeing firsthand the human impacts in the Colorado River Basin, and also talking to the people living there.
Like most of you, I am also taking a gap year because of the pandemic, so I am longing for a chance to get out from my house and experience something new. During my free time I’ve been enjoying running a lot, cooking and baking sourdough, and learning how to draw. I also read a bunch, sci-fi and nonfiction, and I am currently listening to all things indie, San Fermin, Kishi Bashi, and Phoebe Bridgers.
I so excited to see you all so soon in Arizona, and I can’t wait to share so many great experiences together!
