Journalist and Adventurer @ Chris Townsend Outdoors
As a passionate enthusiast for wilderness I have spent much of my life exploring wild places. Long distance hikes are my particular delight and I have completed many of these adventures. Many years ago I set out to communicate my feelings about nature and the joy it brings me through writing and photography.
I am the author of twenty-five books, most illustrated with my photographs, and have co-authored and contributed to several more. I have also written and illustrated hundreds of articles for magazines, web sites and newspapers. Since 1991 I have been the Equipment Editor of The Great Outdoors magazine, contributing monthly features on gear and techniques as well as a regular column on backpacking and occasional pieces on my walks and other outdoor topics. I also write for other magazines and give illustrated talks.
