Greetings! My name is Olivia, but I go by many variations of my given name: Olive, Oli, Via, OE, etc. I can be relatively unpredictable. Hence, my wildcard trail name. Dealing in pyrotechnics is one of my specialties, providing fire and warmth to all at camp. I also dabble in backcountry baking.
During my entire quarter century thus far I have devoted my life to understanding the world surrounding me. My love for nature has become more of an obsession for snow, rocks and ice. From studying geology and environmental studies at the University of Cincinnati to dreams of mountaineering. How the Earth’s processes cooperate in a closed system along with the addition of human factors is really what gets me jazzed. Let’s figure out puzzles together!
What trips are you currently day dreaming about?
Visiting Alaska again, in hopes of summiting Mt. Denali.
Is there a trip that you are planning to do next?
A week long trip in the Purcell Mountains, British Colombia. Hope to climb the NE Ridge on the Spire in the Bugaboos!
What was the last trip you took?
A successful summit on Mt. Katahdin via Knife’s Edge in Maine. After the climb in Baxter State Park we headed to Acadia National Park and saw some of what it had to offer, including a sunrise on top of Cadillac Mountain.
