About Our Team
"Mark's passion for nature is so clearly evident from all the hard work he has put into creating this amazing resource for hiking in the Appalachians and beyond. He has been able to share his love for nature with so many others through this site, his lectures at park nature centers, and his other projects in the works! His energy is contagious, and he has inspired so many to join him in exploring the beauty of the Southeast and the concurrent peace and exhilaration that hiking fosters. His gorgeous photographs express his strong connection to the natural world around him and inspirit others to join him in his mission to explore, protect, revel, and immerse in the beauty of nature!"
