About

I am an avid backpacker. I enjoy nature, photography, and reading. Love to spend time in the wilderness whenever I can.

My backpacking style is lightweight travel, without the ounce counting obsession of ultralight. I generally hike solo and carry a summer pack weight of 21 pounds for 2 night trips and in winter my pack weight is around 25 pounds for a 2 night trip all including 2L water.
