Hello there! My name is Kerrie Neet and my husband’s name is Ray Kenny. I am newly retired from being a transportation director, environmental manager and specialist, hydrogeologist and park ranger. I had a fun and successful career but now it is time to explore, capture moments, and share my joy in learning new things with others. My husband Ray is a geology professor who has chosen to take some time off to explore with me.

Ray and I love to hike, backpack, telemark ski, and boat rivers, particularly by packraft. We have big plans now that we have the time. We completed 335 miles of what we call the John Muir Trail Plus hike in the Sierra Mountains of California in the summer of 2016.  We also completed the 500-mile Colorado Trail in July 2017. Currently we are in the final stages of planning the 800+ mile Hayduke Trail in Utah and Arizona which we will start in March 2018. Yes, our thru hikes are getting longer and more challenging but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

My goal with this site is to provide enough information on our trips that family and friends can share the experience, and that I help educate people on the uniqueness and importance of place. Enjoy and feel free to contact me if you have any questions!!
