Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays Alan Gegax from an epic hike. When not delivering mail to the Vegas community, Alan leads one of the larger hiking Meetup groups in the West, Vegas Hiker’s Meetup. And when not leading hikes, he officiates outdoor weddings and writes stories for Desert Companion Magazine. Alan and Jason hid amongst a pile of rocks in Calico Hills and discussed the finer points of hiking groups, disastrous first backpacking trips, the joys of scrambling over rocks, and the ways the outdoors can change a person for the better.
