Exploring the Giants


Hello, I'm Morgan! I'm an adventure/outdoor enthusiast from Orange County, CA. 

I was raised in a van. Not literally, but figuratively. Every weekend/summer, my parents piled me and my brother into the back of an old Astro van and drove us around the country.  Back then, we didn't have iPhones (crazy right?), so I spent all of my time staring out the window, learning about the outdoors, writing and taking pictures. To this day, one of my favorite things to do is ditch my electronics and get lost in the forest. In fact, it's not unusual for me to jump in the car and drive 6-12 hours just to catch a sunset in a beautiful place. 

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to find my person in life. You'll see my beaux, Travis, in my photographs and writing often, because he's probably the only person on Earth that's willing to spend an entire month on the road with me (with or without coffee). If you enjoy my work, I recommend taking a look at his! He is the calm to my chaos and has a way of balancing out all of the irrational and spontaneous decisions I make. 

Though I have a full-time corporate job, my heart is and will always be on the road. I hope that I can continue to share these experiences with you and inspire you to get outside! 

Thanks for dropping by, make sure to say hello!
