Rachel Townsend

Isle Royale National Park

Hi y’all! I am head over hiking boots to share my summer adventures with you. I am 22 years old and a recent graduate of Florida State University. I studied English with a focus in Editing, Writing, and Media along with a minor in Environmental Studies while at FSU. I cannot wait to see all God has in store this summer for the most remote U.S. national park and I cannot wait to bring you along for the ride. P.s. I have a thing for all animals, so watch out for a plethora of wildlife photography!

Hannah Campopiano

Grand Teton National Park, Old Faithful

Hello! My name is Hannah Campopiano, and I grew up in Chester, Virginia. The Lord led me to go to school in Nashville, Tennessee at Trevecca Nazarene University where I met my husband Joey! We are newly weds, and living in the Grand Teton National Park is our first great adventure. I have always had a heart for the outdoors. My mother would frequently take me on nature walks, and I eventually started going hiking on my own or with friends when I moved away from my home in Virginia. I am committed to wholeness in my life and have taken many steps to work toward my goals. My blog will be a reflection and story of my journey living in Grand Teton that will focus on marriage life, health/fitness, and the many epiphanies that the Lord speaks to me through nature! I hope to reach out to those who have similar experiences or those who would just like to follow this chapter of my life. I can’t wait to share my story with all of you! Feel free to leave comments and ask questions!

Hannah Hammer

Rocky Mountain National Park - Grand Lake

Hi! My name is Hannah and I’m serving with ACMNP for the first time this summer. I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York and I’ll be living and working in Grand Lake, Colorado in the Rocky Mountains for the summer. If I have my way, I’ll be laying in the sun reading a good book or driving around in my truck singing whatever I can find on the radio. In the fall, I'ill start my senior year at Roberts Wesleyan College, where I’m working on a degree in Childhood Education. Then, who knows! I do know God has wonderful things planned for my team and I in the mountains this summer and I can’t wait to see how they unfold. Check back now and then to see where the Rocky Mountain road leads.
