Following rewarding careers as teachers and educational administrators in Vancouver and Richmond, British Columbia, Patti and Barry studied journalism and photography and then set out to pursue adventure travel. Whether canoeing the Yukon River, backcountry skiing in B.Cl’s Monashee Mountains, hiking in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides or trekking in Tibet and Nepal, they embrace the culture and environment of wilderness areas.
