HI, I'm John

I'm currently on a long journey to hike all 63 US National Parks. I've had some incredible adventures and seen some amazing places but I still have a long way to go. Check in occasionally, as I document my journey, to learn about the parks and enjoy the photos I've taken along the way.

My Philosophy

It's not a vacation. it's an adventure

I've worked the same warehouse job for 20 years. I've accumulated enough vacation time each year that I can finally do what I love, hiking and photographing National Parks. You may wonder why after doing physical labor every day, I spend my vacations hiking for miles up mountains and sleeping on the ground in bitter cold and scorching heat. I do it because I want to have an adventure. Relaxation is great, but I'm a big kid. I want to explore, be courageous, and be excited.
