About Me[edit | edit source]

Ian Norton
I grew up in Fort Bragg on the North Coast of California. I'm a backpacking fiend, and have always been fascinated by wild places and the minimizing of human impact on the environment. I'm an advocate of renewable energy, and I'm convinced that its development and usage is necessary for us (humans) to continue our roll as stewards of this finite Earth. An adage that always inspires me when I'm hiking in the back country: Take only photographs, Leave only footprints.
