Hi all! I'm a literature professor in Seattle, where I've lived for seven wonderful years! I'm always looking for new places to hike and backpack (my favorites are in Mountain Loop Highway and the Olympic Peninsula!) and to take out my brand new paddleboard! So far I've paddleboarded around Green Lake (where I live) and Lake Washington. I'm from Spokane originally and still have family there, so I enjoy finding new hikes that way as well!
