Choose Your Adventure…
Hi! I’m Taryn…
and I’m Happiest Outdoors!
I’d rather be hiking, backpacking, or exploring back roads. (In fact, I love it so much I wrote a book about it!)
And if you’re here, I bet you feel the same way.
I created Happiest Outdoors in 2014 to share my adventures, but it has evolved into a resource to empower others feel as comfortable in the outdoors as I do, both near my home in Squamish, and around the world.
