Rock-climber, Mountaineer, Camper, Hiker, Writer
Boulder, Colorado, USA
Born right around sea level in the Midwestern United States, Kristina Eaton heard the call of the wild at a young age. She grew up climbing trees barefoot during the summers and reading every adventure book she could get her hands on during the harsh winters. After graduating from college with a degree in journalism and an itch to explore, Kristina bade farewell to her friends and family and moved west to beautiful Colorado. It didn’t take long for Kristina to bump right into her passion – getting immersed in nature.
Most weekends, you can find Kristina’s tent at the trailhead of one of Colorado’s “fourteeners” – or peaks over 14,000 feet (4267.2 meters). Once she’s hiked to the top of every fourteener in the state of Colorado, her next adventure will take her down the Pacific Crest Trail on a thru-hike that runs along the entire west coast of the United States.
When she’s indoors, Kristina enjoys working in the technology industry and embarking on cooking (mis)adventures in her kitchen with from-scratch Asian and Mexican recipes.
