Welcome to the wildernessed blog where a wide range of topics related to hiking, backpacking, scrambling, and the environment are presented using a multimedia approach. I have spent a lifetime traveling across the American landscape always feeling privileged to have had the opportunity to be immersed in the natural world eventually landing in Washington’s Central Cascades which is a gateway to the Pacific Northwest and its special places, so with this site my intentions are to share experiences, and knowledge, while looking at the science that gives insight into the wild world.
