I am a northwest native with 40 years of hiking and backpacking experience, a survivor from the days of cotton clothing and no water treatment. I’m a failure at ultralight hiking, still carrying a ridiculously heavy pack on trips up to a week long. I prefer going to places I’ve never been before, to enjoy the new scenery (and capture it on camera). For this reason, my trip reports and hiking guide submissions include a few less popular trails. I hope my photos inspire you to try a new trail.
