STC Stealth Famous

For when STC makes you famous without anyone realizing it, but yourself.

Can you get more STC Stealth Famous than when you’re in the middle of the Summit ’14 ad?

I’m hiding under the “New Leads”. This photo was taken at Summit 2015 and used to advertise Summit 2016.

And when you appear in the Year in Review brochure wearing a backpack, about to enter the exhibit hall from Summit ’15, you’re stealth famous. But not as stealth famous as the people in the other photo.

I swear that’s the top of my head, behind Lori. Note the STC-PMC VP, Danielle, in the lower-left, and STC President and PMC member, Adriane, is standing in the center.

The cliffs across the top of my website are Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona. They are north of the north rim of the Grand Canyon. I went backpacking behind them through a slot canyon called Buckskin Gulch and the Paria River Canyon in 2013. The rock formations known as “The Wave” are there too.

I am very tiny in this photo of the Paria River Canyon.


Yosemite is one of my favorite places. I was fortunate to spend the better part of a week hiking there in 2010.

Grand Canyon

I also backpacked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up in 2010.

Hermit Trail on the way down. Silly hat, but it kept the sun off me.


I even wrote a little guidebook about this park.
