Tell us about your favorite adventure.

Getting to work in Zion National Park and having every day be a different adventure. Getting to hike, camp, rock climbing and explore the area was so fun.

I’ll miss all the amazing people I met and the adventures and hikes I went on so much. Getting to wake up everyday in a National Park and explore a place people only spend a couple of days at is an experience I’ll remember forever. Zion will always feel like home and I wouldn’t change the experience for anything. Who knew the desert would be so much fun? Until next time Utah, for now off to the mountains💗

How did you find out about Nature Backs?

About 5 years ago, I saw an ad for Nature Backs and bought one of their shirts. I loved the designs so much that I kept buying them and asked for shirts for my birthday and Christmas. I would talk about the brand all the time with my friends and still do.

Where do you like to hike and explore near you?

I am located in New Jersey, so Allamuchy State Park, Hacklebarney State Park and Mt. Tammany at Delaware Water Gap.

Hacklebarney State Park is my favorite state park and Zion National Park is my favorite national park.
