Wilderness Times may receive commissions for links included in articles to Amazon and other affiliate partners. We take pride in our testing and research, and recommendations are not given out lightly.

There are so many great bloggers, YouTubers, podcasters, and photographers out there creating amazing outdoor content on a daily basis.

Not only did I want to personally get to know them better, but I also wanted to explore outdoor influences and passion for nature.

Thus, we’ve launched the I Love The Outdoors Interview Series.

5. What was your first outdoor memory as a kid?

My parents wouldn’t let me climb Angel’s Landing when I was three.

I was so mad. I have since climbed and have forgiven them.

Me being carried by my dad at Zion.

The first memory I have of loving the outdoors is my first experience at Zion hiking in the narrows. I couldn’t believe I got to walk in water and get all wet.

I still go back every few years so the little kid in me can play in the water. I got mad when they made me be carried.
