What a long stRAyNGE trip it’s been. A look back at Straynger Ranger’s first year and what to expect in the future.

Straynger Ranger officially launched on April 1st, 2016. It was April Fools’ Day but I wasn’t joking. I never thought in a million years I would start my own blog but after years of encouragement from friends (who I would occasionally share my stories with), I decided to take the leap and I’m so glad I did. It brought back my love for photography and has opened up a whole new world that I’m just starting to tap into. I have a lot interesting things planned for the upcoming year, including more unique events, camping trips with a twist and some amazing volunteer opportunities that will hopefully bring a little more love into this world.

Thank you for helping make Straynger Ranger’s first year a success. Don’t forget to follow and like us on Facebook, Instagram and Vimeo for news and updates about our exciting upcoming group events, latest posts and recent stories from our curated collection of other curiosities we’ve gathered from around the web. 2017 is going to be epic and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
