Utah and Maine. Favorite places: Alta, Moab, Jackson (WY), Acadia NP, Sugarloaf, anywhere on the ocean or in the mountains.
I grew up in Maine, splitting my time between Portland, Sugarloaf and Mount Desert Island. After college I decided I needed a lot more powder in my life so I moved to Alta, thinking I'd be there for a few months. Two years later, I still can't get enough of snow and mountains.
So a few years ago, I spent a couple of weeks backpacking around Europe in 5 Euro H&M flip-flops. 6 countries later my feet (and the sandals) were in sore shape. If only I'd known about Chacos. Just get them, your feet will thank you.
