Cassandra grew up on the North Island of New Zealand – surrounded by beaches, grassy hills, and foggy mornings. A passion for adventure and travel led her to solo road trips, long-distance hikes, three years living in Japan, and eventually to the USA and the rocks and canyons of the Southwest. After nearly 15 years in Flagstaff, Cassandra almost feels like a local and can often be found hiking sections of the Arizona Trail, exploring the backcountry of the Southwest, or seeking out new adventures.
“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean…” – John Muir
