About the Author

Hannah Rogers

Naturalist

Although Hannah did not grow up adventuring in the outdoors or traveling around the world, she stumbled upon these in university and it has become two of her biggest passions. From guiding multi-day backpacking trips in southern Utah, to working on glaciers and rivers around the world, she finds true joy in showing others pristine nature. After working in backcountry lodges in interior Alaska, she has fallen in love with the arctic environment. It is not uncommon for her to spend the summers in the Southern Hemisphere and Northern Hemisphere, maximizing the warm climate and sunshine. With a few months off to travel around the world in between- experiencing culture and finding the smaller remote towns to go for a hike or a backpacking trip, she leaves pieces of her heart all over the world.
