Lance Goehring

Born and raised in the land of no hills, Iowa, I moved to Arizona and fell in love with the mountains of the west. My name is Lance and I have had my own computer repair business for over 20 years. For the last 10 years, my every spare moment has been spent on trails and in the national parks of the west, soaking it all in and taking pictures. I figured age 50 is as good as time as any to call an audible and do the unexpected, hike the PCT NOBO in 2020. So, when you see a jolly dude with a white beard in Washington next year, it's not Christmas come early, but just me with a generous growth of trail whiskers.
