Scott Leonard
About Scott Leonard
Scott Leonard has been hiking in Washington for nearly 10 years. A Pacific Northwest native, Scott started his outdoor adventures in the forests and high deserts of Oregon before coming to Washington during college and exploring the Olympic Mountains. After years of hiking in the state for recreation, Scott spent several years at the nonprofit EarthCorps, specializing in trail construction projects—so he has not only hiked many of Washington's trails, but has built several of them as well. He is also the author of Moon Take a Hike Seattle and has a successful criminal defense practice in Portland.
Sean Patrick Hill
About Sean Patrick Hill
For as long as Sean Patrick Hill can remember, he has been traveling. Among those first memories are the car trips his father would take the family on. Yet once he was in college and free to travel wherever he pleased, Sean continuted to explore the great cities of the east. He became interested in the outdoors and soon found himself paddling the Chemung River, climbing through the Black Forest of Pennsylvania, and hiking the glaciated gorges of New York.

When Sean moved to Oregon at the age of 24, he believed he had found paradise. He settled in Eugene and began to explore the Pacific Coast, the Willamette Valley, and the Cascade Mountains. He soon began writing the outdoor column "Open Air" for The Source Weekly, avidly mapping and hiking the Central Oregon Cascades, Steens Mountain, the Blue Mountain Range, and the Siskiyou Mountains. He moved to Portland to earn his master's degree, and found a whole new array of territory to explore. It is this enthusiasm that Sean brings to his travel writing.

Sean currently works as a freelance writer for publications such as The Oregonian, Travel Oregon, and Washington Trails.
