As a Colorado native, Cayla grew up loving the great outdoors. On skis by the age of three and camping while still in diapers, her love of playing outside and zeal for adventure has carried over into her adult life. It’s what inspired Cayla to spend a college semester abroad in New Zealand, which only expanded her desire to travel and share those experiences with others. Cayla’s first season with Backroads was on Camp Crew in the peaceful and pristine San Juan Islands. Now she’s a Trip Leader and has lead in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, where she relishes the summer bliss found in the quintessential mountain town of Jackson, Wyoming. When not leading Backroads trips, you can find Cayla at home in Colorado substitute teaching, riding her snowboard, playing her ukulele or sipping a local craft brew.
