Hello, my name is Shaun Cruze

Welcome to my website

I have always enjoyed hiking in the outdoors. My goal is to introduce you to the important attributes of hiking. I will attempt to keep all of my thoughts and advice consistent to the purpose of informing about the benefits of hiking.
I grew up in rural Minnesota and since then I have always had a love for the outdoors and appreciation of nature. I had the privilege of fishing on many of the 10,000 lakes that along with spending time in nature with family and friends solidified my love for being outdoors.

My career in the military directed me towards staying fit. With all of the different ways to stay fit, I always enjoyed being outside the most. I came to realize that hiking was a great way to stay fit and enjoy the outdoors at the same time. I combined my youth enjoyment of the outdoors with the necessity of staying fit and combined them to discover my love of hiking.

Raising kids and being able to coach kids was my next recognition of the importance of outdoor fitness and healthy living. I realized that kids that were outside playing a sport were happier and healthier than kids that stayed inside. I also have been blessed to spend time with my kids in the outdoors enjoying nature.

I hope you will enjoy the website, if you find something you want to learn more about or want to comment on please feel free to contact me. I appreciate that you checked out the site and hope you are as interested in hiking as I am.
