Tyson Baker

Adventure Writer/ Coffee Roaster

Location icon United States

Born in California's Central Valley, I grew up scouting out what the surrounding landscape has to offer. I have traveled all across this glorious state, picking up nuggets of insight, culture, and what it means to have true grit. As a skilled Barista and Roaster for a local coffee shop, I really enjoy slingin' espresso shots and bringing a cup of perfectly crafted caffeine-deliciousness to the town's customers. Aside from coffee, I have a deep passion for writing and creating. My recent endeavor has been to share my writings and stories in hopes that they will inspire, harmonize, educate, and encourage those that read them.

On my days off, I'm likely out on some adventure – be it exploring the backcountry in the nearby Sequoia National Park, road-tripping with buddies, or cruising through country roads, enjoying the uninhabited hillsides, until I reach the coastline to hunt for coves and sea caves that are calling my name. Though not all adventures are on such a large scale. Sometimes adventures are found in the small things too: like cozying up with a good book that takes my mind away from reality, or sharing a laugh and a good meal with the people that matter most.

Whatever your adventure is, I want to tell you this: 
Don't be afraid to get out there and experience something new. Explore. Create. Share. And love one another.

Non-Disposable Day Trips

I've long called this place my "secret spot" with significance to the hometown I grew up in. Being at Dome Rock with my fiancé and sharing the moments is a memory I want to last forever. So, I snapped a picture with my Analog disposable camera.

Unexpected Turnaround

I once heard Yvon Chouinard say in a documentary that "adventure is when everything goes wrong. That's when the adventure starts." It's not that everything went wrong per se, but more so unplanned and unexpected, and that was the start of our adventure.

A Quarantine Guide for the Outdoor Enthusiast - Mineral King

Take me back to the mountains, to the California Sierra Nevada. Where various trails brought a smile to my face, and the trees brought joy to my soul. Take me to a place where I can explore the great outdoors without having to shelter in place. Take me to a place other than home, for I am home when I am in the unknown.
