Name: Sydney Ryan and Ego
Hometown: Oronoco, Minn.
Where I’ve Been: Ever since I got Ego two years ago, we've traveled all over the country. Our first trip together was out to Colorado and a week later we were in Michigan. In 2018 we backpacked New Hampshires White Mountains before embarking on a three-week, cross-country road trip.
Why I Hike: To make memories and challenge myself. Life is too short to not climb a mountain—or 10.
Lead the Way: My list of destinations is endless, and we plan to start the year exploring Utah and Arizona. We go with the flow and are always looking for new adventures.
