Founder and publisher of backpackinglight.com since November 2000. My home is (currently!) Estes Park, Colorado, and my backyard trails are in the Rockies of Southeast Wyoming and Northern Colorado. I like packrafting, tenkara fly fishing, alpine climbing, and have a particular passion for traveling long distances off-trail without resupply. I'm online elsewhere at ryanjordan.com and Instagram.
