Home: Golden, Colorado
Emma Walker is a freelance writer based in Golden, Colorado. She has worked as an avalanche educator, raft guide and backpacking instructor—and still can’t believe people will pay her to play outside. On her days off, you’ll find her passionately debating the merits of various hot sauces, poring over a guidebook to plan her next adventure, or, best of all, on a trail run with her trusty mutt. You can find more of Emma’s writing at MyAlaskanOdyssey.com.
Favorite type of adventure: If it requires a helmet, I’m probably interested. I’ll always be a skier at heart, though!
