I've lived at Lake Tahoe since 2005 and, ever since moving here, have fallen in love with the place. Although I’ve been playing outside my entire life, it's only been in the last few years that I've started to consider myself a naturalist, having shifted my focus from logging miles to logging identifications.

At this point in my life, I'm mostly interested in identifications and information regarding the flora and fauna of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In addition to going out and enjoying what Tahoe has to offer, I write a hiking and cross-country skiing blog (https://TahoeTrailGuide.com) that focuses on the region. Whenever possible, I include in my articles imagery and information about Sierra Nevada wildlife with the intention of inspiring people to take a closer look at the world around them and develop a greater appreciation for the outdoors.

All of that said, I ultimately want to become more educated so that I can have a richer experience outdoors. So, any and all help with my identifications is much appreciated.

Thank you!
