How do you define equity and inclusion? How do we represent diversity in the outdoors? Is nature genuinely colorblind? Does climbing more mountains free us all from bigotry?

My thirst for belonging in the outdoors outweighs the emotional obstacles. So here are my adventures beyond the stereotypes of LGBT and person of color.

I am John, and I am one hike a week.

circa 2008!

My journey began with one beloved Labrador Retriever. Every adventure signifies a precious memory created with my four-legged companions.

about
one hike a week

Hiking once a week was never about personal conquests. It was merely an excuse to explore new places in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. With the help of my two four-legged companions, day hiking quickly turned into scrambles. Then later, I developed bigger goals by tackling climbing lists.
