Hola! I'm back for another year of OAR and I'm beyond stoked to enjoy dirty, wild, and exciting outdoor extravaganzas! Just came back from the tropics of Costa Rica and done everything from backpacking through the continental divide to catching lizards and climbing mangroves. Catch me (if you can) any time to go see the Northwest!

I have three major
obsessions: running, coffee, and running in new and exciting places. I need
adventure to stay alive, whether it be in the wilderness or in the city. I grew
up in Ellensburg, WA, which is a really small community, so I've spent most of
my life wandering about for new experiences.

I like to try all sorts of new things when it comes to the outdoors world. As it is I enjoy hiking and snowshoeing, or any other inexpensive outdoor adventure. An interesting fact about me is that I am actually allergic to cold temperatures, breaking out in disgusting mosquito bite sized bumps. Yet I refuse to live anywhere else except here where I can enjoying frolicking in the snow and the rain! Otherwise, I love Jamba Juice smoothies year round and I make a perfect impersonation of Raptor screech.

Hi! I'm Ana! A brief intro about myself: 1. I LOVE sports! You name it, I've done it (except skydive, that's this summer :P) I haven't gotten a chance to explore everything, but if I'm not studying, then I'm usually going out with the OAR team. This far I've become a rock-climbing addict and a future hiker. Usually I'll try to push myself to the limits, so I'll sign up for activities like crosscountry skiing, though I have never skied before. I like to encourage people to push themselves too, this way they can find their true potential.

I am from Henderson, Nevada which is about 10 miles outside of Las Vegas. I do
not live in a casino and my dad is not Elvis. I wanted to attend Seattle
University because of its location in the exciting Seattle, and because I
wanted a change from the dry, hot desert that is the Las Vegas valley. I am a
sophomore, undecided major. Most importantly, I love the outdoors and am ready
