Canyon's love for the outdoors and writing has been integral to his personal and professional life.

At 18, Canyon became a wildland firefighter in Montana and continued doing this every summer for eight years. He still returns every August to help out during particularly bad fire seasons. Alongside his passion for the outdoors, Canyon also loves writing. He's currently working on a novel based on his experiences as a wildland firefighter. He was in charge of the prison crew in his state. The story takes inspiration from this experience.
