Hi, and thanks for being here! I’m Taryn, the person behind (most) everything you see on the site. I live in the perpetually sunny southern Arizona desert and have two kiddos, “P” (4) and “O” (6). I have one tattoo, drink too much coffee and probably talk a little too much, always eat one-too-many tacos, work way too hard, and don’t sleep nearly enough. I also lead a very busy, full lifestyle and as the saying goes, I’ve lived a lot of life — which is largely why I created Chasing Trail.
2020 has been a transformative year for so many of us in both good and bad ways. I’ve always been “outdoorsy” and loved to travel, but this year it became a form of therapy for me. My church, if you will. Making an effort to unplug, get outside and explore, and just be with myself and my thoughts, as well as the people in my very small inner circle, changed me in ways I never imagined. Finally, at age…well, thirtysomething…I can honestly say I’ve come into my own. My hope is that some of you can relate!
