Hi there and welcome to my website. 🙂

I am a Camera Engineer who is in love with the great outdoors. Whenever I can get away, I head to the Mountains. I meticulously plan my adventures, and through this website, I hope to share photos and guides related to my trips.

If you love the wilderness as much as I do, or would like to do so vicariously through me, then please join me.
