Looking back at Mount Olympus, the highest point in Olympic National Park, was the highlight of a week- long backpacking trip I did last summer. This meadow was my favorite section of the trip; no people to be seen and on high alert for bears. The meadow seemed to be untouched by humans.
I was born and raised in Maine where I found a love for the outdoors. Dad would take my brother and I hunting, fishing & backpacking in Northern Maine. After I started climbing in 1993 I moved to Oregon. It was here where I started a career in the Outdoor Industry. I was hired as a buyer at the Mountain Shop of Portland, then moved to Bend for a job at Metolius Climbing. I’ve been with the Alta Group since 2007. In October 2011 my wife Cheryl and I left Bend, OR and now reside in Bozeman, MT.
Living in the West has allowed me to enjoy fly fishing, rock & ice climbing, skiing and trail running in the numerous mountain ranges.
