We caught a Utah peak bagger! Come meet him

It is easy to see Tanner Maxwell lives such an active adventure lifestyle.........his backyard is the monstrous peaks of the Wasatch Mountain Range of the Utah Valley.

"I love living in close proximity to utah's 5 national parks!"

Part of the Utah Peak Baggers and conquering world class ranges from a young age, it is easy to understand why his favourite photography is of the mountains.

"It was the mountains that sparked my interest in the photography side of outdoor adventure. They are mighty and strong. Mountain photography will always be my roots."

This young adventurer really is Utah through and through. When asked about his ultimate adventure location, despite it being a tough decision, he is really dying to explore the Grand staircase escalante of Southern Utah. 

- This made us think, we often over look the amazing destinations we have so close - where can you explore in your own state?

" ALWAYS set aside time for the outdoors, never become dormant. If you aren't into the outdoors, I would advise at least trying them out! The great outdoors can help you in unimaginable ways!"

Welcome to the thisworldexists team Tanner. You continue to inspire us with your adventures and cannot wait to go exploring in Utah real soon.
