My name is Robby Easton, originally of Mattoon, Illinois. This home page is my collection of amateur photography and narratives of my nationwide travels. When I was searching for an enjoyable pastime - to supplant a long-time drag racing career that had run its course through my soul - I found it in the sights and sounds of the wilderness. From beginning as a casual car-bound traveler of the busiest national parks, I evolved into someone who really seeks out the most unspoiled natural areas I can find. Whether the activity is hiking, backpacking or scrambling in forests, deserts or mountains, I enjoy it all. My most pleasurable hobbies outside of the backcountry are coaching youth baseball, working out, bike riding, statistics, and reading history, science and philosophy.

A Few Words:
For any reader not already affiliated with the outdoors, I hope something here inspires you to, at least, take a weekend and go somewhere wild that interests you. I bet you enjoy it.
I am working on my pictures and narrative from my April trip to Ohio and Pennsylvania. Those additions will be finished sometime in the weeks ahead. The rock map picture is up to date - looking forward to finding the next piece of the puzzle.
