“Hear the roaring vastness of a great valley, or the sigh of wind in the treetops, or the eternal thunder of breakers on the shore. Then go back and speak to the world from your heart.”
– Randy Stoltmann
I’m an avid hiker, decent skier and fledgling packrafter and climber. I’m trying to be a diverse outdoors person who focuses on the experience, not the accomplishment. In regular life I’m a grad student in ecology. I’ll talk your ear off about environmental issues and wilderness protection.
My travels include thru-hiking the 2660 mile Pacific Crest Trail in 2014 with my wife Tara, and completing the Bob Marshall Wilderness Open in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Here you’ll find trip reports, beta, gear reviews and environmental polemics.
