Regardless of my location or stage in life, I’ve always possessed a desire to explore. When I moved to Arizona from Colorado in 2012, I thought my explorer days would start winding down. I mean, how can any place compare to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado? Boy, was I wrong.
Within a year of moving to Arizona, I made my first trip to the Grand Canyon. That experience opened my eyes to all sorts of possibilities. Did you know hiking season is year round in Arizona? Same with kayaking season.
There’s literally no limit to the adventure opportunities in this state. My Arizona Bucket List described above started out as just that: a list. Over time it became a blog post, then a 125-page adventure guide and journal.
After my 20-year corporate job ended in 2019, I picked up a few side hustles to help fill the income gap while I pursued another full-time job. One of those gigs involved guiding hikes in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve not far from my home. I started with a full-moon hike experience and slowly added on other types of hikes.
To date, I’ve guided over 200 hikes and continue to host the experiences in my spare time. I’ve earned stellar ratings and reviews on the platform I use to promote my guided experiences.
