My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

GG Cuben Fiber Shelter
Wow, that shelter looks a heck of a lot like what I've been dreaming about lately... a Cuben Gatewood Cape. I hope they'll have a cape option, or at least consider it.

I was a guide in Denali NP during the summer of 2008. It rained almost every day for all of July and the first week of August this year, and I was out in it all day, every day. My MontBell Peak She...
