A Word from Misty Pine
I feel most myself when I’m in nature. Sharing my love and respect for the outdoors brings me great joy.
You’ll either find me as far away from people as possible, or sharing my passion for recreation with them.
My personal interests include Backpacking, Hot Springs, Mycology, Off-Road Vehicles, Photography, Native Plants, Overlanding, Eating Well, and all things Motorcycle.
