LOCATION: Big Sur, California
Hi I'm Jack 'Quadzilla' Jones. I love hiking, backpacking, and adventure! The sense of aliveness that I experience in the back-country surrounded by expansive wilderness and towering mountains is simply indescribable. I first started documenting my trips with the Appalachian Trail in 2016 to try and share a small glimpse of the beauty and tell the stories of the many interesting people that I met. Since then I've biked the Arizona Trail and Highway 1 from Mexico to Canada and thru-hiked the Continental Divide Trail. I hope to finish my triple crown in 2021. These adventures have instilled in me a love for the outdoors and a need to preserve it. I've transitioned from office-work to working on Conservation Corps crews and will be starting a new career as a wild-land firefighter next year.
