The Lost Creek Crew From present to past...
My name is Talia and I am currently studying environmental science at Pitzer College. I grew up in Madison kayaking on the lakes, and have a love for crocheting, baking, backpacking, and meeting new people. This will be my first year as a guide with LCA, and I am so so excited to spend the summer exploring the area with you all!!
Hello, I’m Ben. I’m an avid skier, runner, paddler, guitar player, and movie watcher. I’m excited to get out on the water this summer and learn more about Lake Superior.
I’m super stoked to join the LCA team this summer! This spring, I graduated from UW La Crosse with a degree in recreation management. I’ve been visiting Lake Superior since childhood and have grown to love spending time anywhere in the north woods. Aside from kayaking, I enjoy mountain biking, climbing and skiing; really anything that gives me an excuse to explore and be outside. I can’t wait to meet amazing people and help facilitate positive experiences on the big lake!
Howdy, y’all. I love the outdoors and have been guiding outdoor trips and activities for about five years now. Most recently I was leading trips in the Florida Keys and I’m excited to see the contrast between kayaking there and here on Lake Superior. I can’t wait to meet you all and share some great adventures this Summer!
Hi there! My name is Haydn, and I'm thrilled to be joining LCA as a guide this summer! I'm now a student at Middlebury College in Vermont, but I've lived in and around Lake Superior for most of my life. When not on the water, I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, skiing, baking, and playing guitar. I'm so excited to be able to share my love of the lake and my passion for the natural world with everyone!
Hi, I'm Sam your shop greeter and trip welcome-back'er. I love the water and chasing stuff. Can't wait to see you!

Owner of Lost Creek Adventures Greg has been a wilderness guide and paddler since 1992. He regularly teaches kayak instructor certification workshops, wilderness survival classes, traditional skills workshops and leads expeditions throughout the Americas. He also guides kayak and SUP trips every chance he gets!
Growing up in the land of 10000 lakes, I always loved the water. The idea of kayaking started as a way to fish the local waterways; paddling quickly became a passion and I haven’t put down my paddle long enough to fish! In the last 3 years, I have become a certified instructor, paddling/safety advocate, sea kayak symposium enthusiast, and officer of La Crosse Paddling Club. When I’m not on the water, you can find me hiking with my dog Larry, organizing music festivals, or volunteer fundraising.
This will be my first year on the LCA team. I am a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a major in Therapeutic Recreation and minor in Psychology. I grew up near the dells and spent much of my childhood hiking and rock climbing at Devils Lake. I enjoy ultimate frisbee, hammocking and traveling with friends! I am always looking for a new adventure and I look forward to sharing my love for the outdoors with the clients and staff.
Hi! My name is Emily and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan. This is my first year with LCA and I could not be more excited. I love meeting new people and spending my time outside. Other than my love for kayaking and being out on the water, I also enjoy skiing, reading, and cooking with friends and family.
