Evolve Back: Stories from Orange County Resorts

Walking his Talk!

‘Johnnie Walker’ is a true earth spirit. His heart is firmly rooted in the soil where he was born, surrounded by the abundance of nature. The land and the elements define Johnnie most fittingly. He belongs with them totally. In the time of cell phones and tablets, it is both refreshing and inspiring to see someone so grounded in the physical reality of the here and now.

His connection with the land and concern for its well-being makes him a genuine steward – a telling example of what it means to take care of the land that sustains all of us…

Local Heroes is our ongoing journey to bring to you captivating stories about our land and its people; a symbiosis that we explore and celebrate through expressive and uplifting video and photo essays every month. We believe this Responsible Tourism Initiative will cause you to see 'evolution' in a new light.
