Max's early childhood was spent in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains in Northern Utah and his teenage years in the red rock desert of Southern Utah. Thanks to his dad and the Boy Scouts, he was able to spend a lot of time hiking at an early age. He completed his first 14-mile day hike at age 7 in Zion National Park and was backpacking by age 11.
