About Us

About our crew and writers

Our crew of misfits is based in the southwest and mountain states- we all travel on a regular basis throughout the region. During our travels, we have seen and experienced a lot of the local geography, trails, hot-spots, and culture, and we’re here to share our stories, pictures, and advice for what to see and do in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

Most of us are involved in some adventure sport or activity like mountain biking, rock climbing, backpacking, cliff diving, alpine mountaineering, and trekking. However, our advice, ideas, and inspiration will span over a multitude of activities throughout the region!
