Hello, and welcome to my humble blog.

The idea of this site is to help you explore and connect with the world around you. A Way to Hike better, not just how to use a compass and map, but to learn all about the wonders you can find out your front door. Hopefully what I write gets you thinking about what there is to see, and going outside becomes a treasure hunt.

My name is Evan, a former trail guide, trail builder, and all-around explorer from a family of writers in the Rocky Mountains (although some of us have since dispersed).

Some of my other writing can be found at “Eat the Children” a satirical blog about solving the world’s problems in the most ridiculous ways.

If there are scientific inaccuracies to be corrected, or just just general things you need to get off your chest about this blog, feel feel to contact me.
