When I moved to Park City, I didn’t fully appreciate how we lived in one of the best jumping off points for adventure. Candidly, growing up in a wealthy western suburb of Boston, my idea of adventure was a teen tour across the US traveling in a bus and staying at hotels and dorms. Enter college boyfriend (and now husband), Erik. I met Erik sophomore year after his semester with NOLS and did everything I could to convince him I was as hardcore an adventurer as he. From an impromptu trip to Honduras to “dates” at Cornell’s climbing gym, I had him fooled. Now, many years later, I recognize that my definition of adventure has changed just as I have grown and perhaps, I only fooled myself. On Friday, we embark on a backcountry adventure on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I’m struck by my excitement to be in a remote beautiful place, disconnected from the world, grounded in nature, and creating memories that will last the rest of our lives… if only my 18-year-old self could see me now!!!
