Name: Mikaela Ray
Hometown: Sedona, Ariz.
Where I’ve Been: My father and I built a canoe together when I was about 12 years old. We took our makeshift canoe down a huge section of the Delaware river, camping and eating fresh caught fish for dinner for weeks. We had to make so many repairs to our canoe along the way. This was the start of my lifelong obsession with adventure.
Why I Hike: I'm a hiking guide with Wildland Trekking, and I love taking people to beautiful places. My love of the natural world and medical sciences (I majored in Medical Sciences) has taken me to remote medical backpacking trips in Peru, Mexico, India and parts of the U.S.
Lead The Way: Onward!
