I’m a published outdoor writer and photographer with multiple articles in The Oregonian newspaper and website. Topics include favorite hiking trails, finding wild orchids and lilies, spotting and identifying butterflies and small birds, Goat Rocks Wilderness, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, finding winter solitude in the Columbia River Gorge, and treks on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains.
I enjoy hiking in Pacific Northwest wilderness areas, hitting the trail two to three times a week. The blog posts describe my outdoor adventures with photos capturing the spirit of the wild. Sometimes the blog posts become the foundation for a published article, as do the photos from time to time.
I’m a native of the beautiful Wenatchee and Okanogan Valleys in Northcentral Washington.
I encourage you to follow my postings and share in our beautiful Pacific Northwest scenery and wildlife.
