Born and raised on the west coast, Rylee is a lover of all things out of doors, out of bounds and out and back. The very-American idea of the open road has led her to bike tour all over this country and south. She also enjoys vertical backpacking, regular backpacking, rock climbing, flower identifying, running, and swimming. Currently, her passion is being poured into becoming a health care practitioner by means of nursing school.
