Hi! I'm Melissa and that's my husband, Onur. In my heart, I’m an explorer. I’m endlessly curious about the world around me and passionate about helping people get outside. To that end, I strive to write in a fun and informative way about what you see and experience on a hike! I’m also an aspiring photographer and enjoy capturing a hike’s personality while out on the trail.
I am the author of the book Moon 75 Great Hikes Seattle. Before moving to the Bay Area, I was a Hiking Guide Correspondent and Contributor to the Washington Trails Association. I currently write about hiking in the Bay Area for Modern Hiker. Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com. Thank you for stopping by :)
