90 John Beth backpacking.jpg
John and Beth choosing dry skies to camp atop the Continental Divide, Colorado (12,400 feet) for some night photography.
John began camping while growing up in Iowa, but soon bored with typical campgrounds.
Moving to Connecticut in high school, a magazine article introduced John to backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. He moved to Colorado (BS zoology) and Washington (MS entomology) for college and the wilder outdoors.
