Living in Southern California, but Midwestern at heart. I am a Buckeye, and I grew up in a small town in Northeast Ohio's rural area and always loved activities that brought me outside (snowboarding, hiking, camping), but I didn’t start appreciating the outdoors and nature until I explored the Rockies in Colorado. I’ve lived in a lot of places, I've traveled all over the U.S., and I'm a seeker for adventure. I believe in being deliberate with each step you take in life and never limit yourself. Find me on my blog (hikinghan.com) or Instagram (@hiking.han) to follow my adventures and educate yourself about hiking and exploring Southern California!
