2017: A better Earth awaits
Is it proper that the wilderness and its creatures should suffer because we came?
— Dick Proenneke

I do hope that everyone had an incredible end of the year & are ready, inspired & concentrated on the present. 2017. I'm going to be focusing on conservation as my son grows beside me, sharing my photographs & writing. Three books are expected to be published in 2017 (My newest 35mm film photography collection "Field Portfolio", will be available February 1st). I'll introduce new opportunities this year including group hikes, tree identification backpacking expeditions & conservation workshops. 2017 is the year for us to recognize & pursue ways to better the earth, to really begin nourishing its delicate lands & climate. Spreading & evolving peoples education of the wilderness & its limitless amounts of social equity is an overall goal for me in this new year. We need all heads passionately working together for the same beautiful outcome.
