I’m Nick. I’m a writer, reader, hiker, teacher, musician, husband, and father.
I write about backpacking and the outdoors, our interactions with culture, and whatever else seems interesting to me at the moment.
I’ve hiked the John Muir Trail (08), the Pacific Crest Trail (16), the Lowest to Highest Route (17), the High Sierra Trail (18), and the Yosemite High Route (20), among many others.
I send out a newsletter every other Saturday called Intrinsic. It’s about nature, beauty, and wisdom.
Please check out some of my recent posts below, or poke around a bit and see what you can find. There are lots of adventures to be had.
