Karen loves exploring the backcountry of our National Parks despite having been bluff charged by a bear in Sequoia, in a rock slide and then evacuated from Yosemite, rescued by the coast guard from Channel Islands, and paid $2 to float across the Rio Grande into Mexico from Big Bend. When she isn’t travelling, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, gardening and playing with her two Labrador retrievers.
