Luke recently joined the High Country team in Buckhead after spending several years as a park ranger out West. After working in several Georgia State parks, he made his way west to work in Great Basin, Mill City, and Salmon, Idaho (his favorite!) He's made his way back to Georgia to work in the Outdoor Industry. We asked him a couple of get-to-know-you questions -- check em out below!

  1. What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Answer: Camping and dirt biking. I got to combine the two when I worked as a park ranger in Salmon, Idaho mapping land.

  1. What is the best place you've traveled to and why?

Answer: Peru - beautiful places, people, food, an ancient culture and diverse environments.

  1. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

(Maybe we should put a trip to High Country Adventures on the books this summer??)

  1. Favorite line from a movie?

Answer: "We thought you was a toad." - O Brother, Where Art Thou?
