My name is Ayla Kanow and I am a 15 year old skier, soccer player and backpacker. This summer I hiked the High Sierra Trail across Northern California and summited Mt. Whitney the tallest peak in the Contenential United States. I am passionate about keeping our public lands free and pure of natural beauty. I believe that everyone should have the same opportunities to travel through nature without the fear that one day it could be demolished. Save our public lands, so you and I can continue to run free throughout the mountains.
