Katie & Quinci

Desert Dwellers

I'm Katie, with my constant sidekick, Quinci. We're desert dwelling, trash collecting, community loving hippies. We choose the outdoors and community above all else. Whether that's hiking, paddleboarding or backpacking - we love it all. We live in Arizona, and explore on the weekends and weeknights. I work a 9-5ish job, but that doesn't slow us down. We're just happy sticking to our local favorites as we are exploring new and exciting areas. See you on the trails!

Quotation Marks

My dogs remind me to take advantage of each day and every opportunity. We feel most alive when we escape into the wilderness! To me, they represent freedom, love and authenticity.

Waypoints: Ashes on the Arizona Trail with Katie & Quinci

Ruffwear Ambassadors Katie and her canine-sidekick Quinci recently said goodbye to a member of their pack, beloved dog Chipper. To honor his life, Katie and Quinci embarked on a 67-mile, 6 day hike of the Arizona Trail where they spread Chipper's ashes in a bed of wildflowers.
