As a boy growing up in the east Evan dreamed of experiencing the old west as depicted in the movies. Films like “Lonesome Dove”, “Jeremiah Johnson” and “ The Good The Bad and The Ugly” seemed to consume all thought. A t a young age he could be found trying to out draw Yul Brynner while watching the “Magnificent Seven” instead of doing homework. At 18 years old Evan left his hometown and headed to Lander, Wyoming, in search of adventure. What he found was a love for the mountains, rivers, lakes and streams off the Rockies and he never looked back.
After living a semi nomadic lifestyle splitting his time between Colorado, Oregon and Wyoming Evan has managed to rack up an impressive river resume with commercial experience on 6 different rivers. He is Swift Water Rescue IV certified, and has lead river trips on the Wild and Scenic Rogue river, the Cataract Canyon on the Colorado, and the Grand Canyon on the Colorado to name a few. Along with his loving wife Sarah and son August, he is now a full time resident of Jackson. Although the days of living in a pick up truck and moving from town to town are behind him, Evans’ desire for adventure is still alive and well. Only time will tell what is in store for him around the coming river bend.
