Explore nature with  me—


Join me in exploring nature and its conservation in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and beyond. As a nature writer, photographer, conservationist, and an eternal student of nature, my mission is to plumb its mysteries and share what I observe about species' lives and the ecosystems they inhabitday by day, season by season.
