Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

Dylan was born and raised on a small farm in Montana. His love for the outdoors has led him to climb throughout the western US, sea kayak in Norway, ski patrol in WA state, row boats down the Grand Canyon, run sled dogs in Sweden, and travel extensively throughout Chile and Argentina. When not guiding, you can find him working as a field engineer for seismic and earth science research. He currently calls Bellingham, WA home and enjoys exploring the North Cascades with his girlfriend, Sara, and their pack of dogs.
