Hi everyone, my name is Noah. I’m really looking forward to starting the trip in a few weeks and getting to meet all of you in person! I’m from Marin County, just north of San Francisco, and have lived here all my life. Being outside and getting active is something familiar to me. I’ve spent a lot of my time outdoors playing soccer, running, hiking, and biking. Although I have been on a couple of river rafting trips in my life, I have never been backpacking. I love to camp, so I think it will be a great experience.
One of my passions is photography and I will be bringing my camera to hopefully capture some moments of our adventure as we go. I’m especially into star photography and am looking forward to super un-light-polluted night skies to capture stars.
I chose to come on this trip because I spent my first semester of college at home on my computer staring at blank-faced people in rectangle boxes and I didn’t enjoy it. Surprising I know. Spending an extended period outdoors learning about different environments has always been something I’ve wanted to do and this seemed like a great time to do something like this. I’m hoping to learn how we can better manage the limited resources we have been given and to be able to take that knowledge with me in the future.
See you in Arizona!
