Out on the Border

Please see Eagle Creek Fire: What Now to find ways to contribute to the restoration efforts in our beloved Gorge.

Welcome to Out on the Border! This website offers glimpses into my adventures from a variety of angles. It is organized into these categories:

  • Nitty Gritty: Practical advice, including trail data and packing tips.
  • Moments: Photos, reflections, and essays from my trips.
  • Pitch In: Ways to contribute to the awesome trails and places we love.

In the Trails & Travels section, I list my favorite adventures, including:

  • Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area: THE BEST PLACE EVER.
  • Oregon Coast Trail: The 367-mile route tracing the coastline of Oregon on beach, trail, and, occasionally, Highway 101. I completed this trek in spring 2017.
  • Salkantay Trek, Peru: An approximately 74-kilometer (46 mile) trek from Cusco to Machu Picchu. I completed this hike in 2011.

And finally, I have some recommendations for further reading!

Enjoy your visit, and happy trails! Keep on walkin’ that line.
