As a Recreation Management Major at Brigham Young University I supposed I should have seen this coming. I spent my college days mountain biking, rock climbing, river rafting, skiing, and hiking with no thought about my future or involving kids in the outdoors. It was just something I loved. Fast forward some 10 years later […]
