My name is Donovan. I have lived most of my life in California. From early on, as a small boy I was so lucky to have parents that lived and spent time in the great outdoors. I think I can remember back to age three, and all I know is that I was awe struck with the magic of the mountains, the Sierra. I didn’t know how to express my feelings as a little kid, but as a young teenager and adult my passion grew into the inner desire to experience the wilderness. Over the years this has taken many forms, some great, some just enough to keep me sane. As a young teen I was taken over by the rush of climbing.
Whatever you want to call it, it planted a seed in me that has evolved, and brought me to this point, hiking the PCT., solo.
