An Annual Hike to Honor a Great Friend

Every year, a group of family, friends, and loved ones get together for the Ryan P. Ginther Memorial Hike. It's an opportunity to share stories, eat some good food, and tackle a physically-demanding hike. 

The 5th Annual Ryan P. Ginther Memorial Hike will take place at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina on May 23, 2020. We've partnered with the Four Seasons Foundation in Western North Carolina to raise fund for Camp Heart Songs, an overnight camp gearded towards area youth who have lost a close family member. Ryan's son, Noah, attends camp each year and we're proud to support such a worthy cause. With your help, we've raised more than $17,500 for Camp Heart Songs!

Please consider making a donation and joining us for the memorial hike at Grandfather Mountain. Thank you for your continued generous support!



Paddling and camping in Alligator Alley. Hiking the Appalachian Trail with a homeless stranger. Always enjoying the outdoors and the people who share them with me.


A view in pictures from some of my favorite hikes and adventures in the Southeast. Take a look at photos from the Appalachian Trail to the Coastal Carolina beaches and everywhere in between. Sunrises, sunsets, waterfalls, and mountain peaks. I've done my best to capture the beauty of the region through my lens.
