The stories I write are meant to provide an outlet for my enthusiasm while inspiring others to set out and enjoy America’s magnificent landscapes. Hiking is for everyone. Newbies may be intimidated by initial hurdles, but the rewards are endless. Fresh air, solitude, relaxation, splendid scenery, physical exertion . . . the list goes on and on.
I hope these stories impart wilderness commonsense and make launching a new adventure easier for you. So read, savor, and set out!
