The 2nd Northern Wolf Featured Explorer, Evan Nowak

Northern Wolf Apparel has a simple mission- to lead the pack back into the Great Outdoors.
Look through the album to learn more about Evan and how he Roams Freely! 

My name is Evan Nowak, I'm 25 years old (June 30, 1991) I graduated from Pittsburgh Technical Institute  (now known as Pittsburgh technical college) with a degree in mechanical drafting. I currently work in the telecommunications field as an asset integration technician. I shoot my photos with a Nikon d3300 with just a regular kit lens and also occasionally use my galaxy s6 as well. I also enjoy music, hockey (Go pens 🐧) and tattoos.

Being outdoors is a way for me to escape the monotony of everyday life. It's a breath of fresh air, literally. There's something so peaceful about being outside.

I was lucky enough to grow up near some nice state parks and forests as a kid. These forests for me were a place I could be at one with myself and forget about my day to day tasks as a kid, and as I have realized growing up, also as an adult. I also have a thirst for exploring new places and discovering new things and the outdoors has always quenched that thirst. 

As crazy as it may sound, I still to this day love exploring the state park I grew up near, Racoon Creek State Park. It's nothing special, but it gives me a feeling of nostalgia. Even though for over 15 years I've been exploring it, I seem to always find something new. 

I also have set a goal to hit every high point in each state in the US. So, anytime I visit a new state that's the first thing I do and it's also my favorite because it's such a challenging goal. The beauty and feel of each state is easily captured at its highest point.

My favorite memory in the Great Outdoors is an old one. I can recall when I was about 6 or 7 years old my parents taking me to a trail out near my house in Pittsburgh. I remember climbing up what seemed like a mountain to me as a child, but was basically just a little hill and thinking how beautiful the trees were at the top, and how worth the climb to the peak. This was the first real time I had experienced a trail and being that far into the woods away from home. I was instantly hooked.
