Preparing for the Arizona Trail

The crowdfunding campaign was a great success and I will be leaving for Arizona at the end of February! Thanks to my generous backers, I will be starting the trail in early-mid March of 2016. My goal is to not only thru-hike and photograph the trail in its entirety, but to also donate usage of those photos to the Arizona Trail Association so they can better protect the scenic resources found along the trail. Recently, one of these areas shot to the spotlight when the Center for Biological Diversity released the only public footage of the one jaguar known to live in the entire United States. This amazing animal migrated in from Mexico and his helping his species to repopulate areas that were lost to them long ago by predator extirpation. Now, a Canadian company wants to create an open-pit copper mine right in the middle of his habitat, destroying a critical wildlife corridor and devastating him home, leading to myriad consequences in the natural world in that region. It’s my hope to capture enough of Arizona’s incredible scenery along the trail to prevent short-sided mistakes like that from taking place anywhere near the Arizona Trail. To follow along, keep up with my blog or my YouTube channel.
