Meet your TX Team
Hi! My name ia Taylor and I currently live in El Paso/Fort Bliss, TX with my husband and our two children. My husband Adam is AD Army but he would not be pleased if I didn't also mention 'once a Marine, always a Marine' prior to the Army! I was born and raised in rural MN and that is where my love for the outdoors started! I didn't really get into hiking though until we PCS'd to Fort Bliss in 2018 and since then my love for the outdoors has grown, especially since having kids. I love taking my kids on adventures and watching them experience all our beautiful earth has to offer!
Favorite Adventure: This past winter we went on a "National Parks of Arizona" road trip. We visited Saguaro, Grand Canyon, and Petrified Forest.
Favorite Trail Snack: Granalo bars for sure. They are easy to eat and usually don't leave too much of mess if my toddler is eating them in the pack!
I always pack extra water and all the snacks! Maybe it's a Mom thing but you will never find me short on snacks!
Hey there! My name is Katie. I hail from suburbs of Philadelphia. My husband serves in the Army and we have two kids. One thing I love about this crazy military life is exploring all the places the Army takes us with my kids and husband. “I go into the woods and I am home” This John Muir quote rings true in my heart! Since my early years, the outdoors has been a place of exploration, peace, adventure, beauty, and wonder to me. I’ve always been excited to see the wild place around me - and I am always excited to connect with others who want to get out and explore wild places too!
Favorite Adventure: “Favorite” is a hard word. So top three: Backpacking with my hubs thru the Enchanted Valley on the Olympic Penisula in Washington State. Kayaking down the Owyhee River in Oregon. Trekking thru the India Himalayans. Okay, four becasue, my kids are great. Any time I get outside with my kids and they expereicne the wonder and the beauty of nature.
Favorite Trail Snack: Jerky. Almonds. Apples. Trader Joe’s canned Mackerel… if its a longer hike and lunch is involved.
I always pack a bandana, snacks, extra clothes for my kids.
This Could be you...
