I’m a travel writer who hates to travel.
At least anywhere beyond the Southwest. I knew Arizona was where I belonged soon as I arrived as a wide-eyed college student. I fell in love with the immense beast of sky, the mountains that prop it up and much to my surprise, the stark desert that scratches it with spiny fingers. I spend my days rambling around this beguiling, bewitching landscape—hiking, camping, exploring, eating, and hiking a little more. Then I write about it all.
Yes, it’s the coolest job in the world. No, you can’t have it.
Hey, I'm hiking 1,000 miles in 2013 and writing about it for the Arizona Republic. To follow along, check out my Trails page.
