I had the wonderful opportunity to take things in a very different direction for this month’s Utah Adventure Journal. The article is about the apparent contrast between the author’s inner sci-fi nerd (guilty pleasures!) and his love for athletic outdoor activities like skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, etc. One of the things he narrates in the […]
