To be bewildered, amazed and humbled by nature is a phenomenon that most of us are familiar with. Nature in its purest form is a compelling force that provides profound lessons about our place on this planet. It pushes our boundaries. It challenges our definition of comfort. But most importantly, nature can help us realize what we're capable of. The concept of personal growth through outdoor activity and the chance to share that experience with others is what allures many of us to become Backroads leaders. It's also what inspires many leaders to volunteer to help make these experiences accessible to underserved populations.
About: Cayla Enger
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.
