As the Digital Content Manager for WTA, I love connecting with and supporting an incredible community of volunteers, hikers and would-be hikers with Washington's wild places. In addition to hiking and working on Washington's trails, I've backpacked and repaired sections of the Colorado Trail, the Appalachian, and the Pacific Crest Trails. I have a particular fondness for desert camping, alpine lakes and marmots. This year, I've set a goal to spend 10 percent of the year (36 nights) sleeping under the stars.
