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.
Climbing highlights from summer and fall 2019. It was another adventurous season of deep dive into many obscure and picturesque destinations in the Cascades.
My journey began with one beloved Labrador Retriever. Every adventure signifies a precious memory created with my four-legged companions.
