EXPLORER, KYLE FROST[full_width padding=”15px 15px 15px 15px”]Kyle Frost is a designer and photographer and advisor for The Outbound Collective, a community of outdoor enthusiasts helping people to discover the best local outdoor adventures. In his free-time he can be found backpacking, camping, climbing, and more recently, mountain biking. [/full_width] [one_half padding=”15px 15px 15px 15px”]Why are adventures so important?
For me, every trip to the mountains is a chance to see something new, challenge myself, and recharge from a week of hectic work. There’s a certain thrill from putting yourself in situations where you’re not completely comfortable.
What’s your go-to adventure?
In winter, I snowshoe or XC ski into a backcountry campsite somewhere. Winter is a great time to visit places that are crawling with tourists in the summer.[/one_half] [one_half_last padding=”15px 15px 15px 15px”]Any advice for adventure seekers?
Make the most of your weekends. Many people have the perception that I just travel all the time or do photography and camping for work. In actuality I’m working 40/50/60+ hours a week in a city.
When you’re committed to getting out and adventuring, you can find a way. It usually involves 4am wake up calls, lots of caffeine, sacrificing sleep, long drives, and unforgettable memories.[/one_half_last]
