I had the pleasure of connecting with
Derek a year ago to help with an investigation he was conducting. He then taught me animal tracking, backpacking and
survival skills to help become equiped to enjoy the Olympic Mountains. My first backpacking trip was with Derek, hiking
up to a ridge, watching him set trail cams like those on his web site.
The techniques I learned from Derek gave me the confidence
I needed to hike and backpack on the mountain trails and ridges. Derek also shared his knowledge with trail camera
setup and placement. I now use trail cameras for my investigations of wildlife.
anyone that has the desire to get out exploring the beauty of the mountains, but do not feel prepared, I encourage you to
contact Ridge Walkers to fulfill those life long dreams,
