My name is Justin Wright and I am based in Portland, Oregon. I am addicted to exploring the outdoors and love rock climbing and mountaineering.
This blog was originally started after I graduated college and moved from Wisconsin to Hawaii. It was a place for me to share my stories with family and friends. As my blog started to gain popularity, I received emails from various people asking if I could help them set up a blog. After gaining more clients, I quit my full-time job in 2007 and started a web development business called Zoopmedia.
I am currently pursuing a degree in earth sciences from the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. My main interests include hydrology, glaciers, water resources, and climatology. I hope to transition into a related career in the near future. I am also a volunteer on Mount St. Helens and love spending time on the mountain.
