Planting The Seed of Passion To Sprout Lasting Adventures for Life
“Everybody needs beauty…places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul alike.” – John Muir
Long before Scott Gehrman started Lasting Adventures, his mother Sharyl started taking him camping in Yosemite. The Valley was Sharyl’s sanctuary; a world of healing and solace that brought her therapy during her battle with breast cancer. For Sharyl and her children, classic Yosemite camping trips became a family tradition. Beneath the great walls of the Valley she shared with Scott and his siblings the power of magnificent granite, the wisdom of ancient giant Sequoias, the thrill of roasting marshmallows, and the serenity of panoramic views. Sharyl took great pleasure in sharing her passion with her three children, a passion that relieved them all through even the darkest times. Then when Scott was just 15, Sharyl lost her battle with breast cancer and his childhood camping outings came to an end.
