Katie Boué has three guiding thoughts:
adventure often, take care, and do good. 

Katie Boué is a Cuban-American outdoor advocate, freelance writer + social media expert, professional adventurer, climber, public speaker, former van-dweller, and public lands wonk. She is Miami-raised and traded flat Florida swamps for a life of exploring mountains, camping in the desert and playing in the snow. Boué currently lives in Salt Lake City, UT with her partner Brody Leven and her dog named Spaghetti.

Katie’s love of being outside and sharing wild spaces is the focus of her work in the outdoor recreation industry. She sees opportunity for empowerment, empathy and action in every outdoorist–and she wants to help the outdoor community do good, from public lands policy + sustainability, to better access + inclusion in our parks and in the media.

    You got the hot tea with too much sugar from me. You should become the foremost expert on travel info for rock climbing enthusiasts.

      That’s lookin’ like the plan! Travel advice for people living the climbing lifestyle – traveling on a budget, exploring the outdoors, lots of locally-brewed beer, a heavy dose of different cultures, and of course loads of photography. Who wouldn’t love to write/read about that?
