Thanks for visiting! I started this website to write about my backpacking and hiking trips. When I was planning for these trips I found that there wasn't a ton of useful information out there, and it definitely wasn't all in one place. I made this website to share all of the information I've come across on each of these trips, including the gear that's worked well for me. Each trip has a map and photo gallery, and you can find a summary on this home page below. Please browse around and comment or contact me with any questions!
I am currently working on populating content but my first priority was releasing the website live with JMT information.
