Hey there, I’m Sarah North.

I am a writer and adventure guide. Currently I write about public health and I am a part-time backpacking guide and adventure planner. Over the years, my work has involved sustainable development initiatives in Nepal and teaching & writing for the outdoor co-operative, REI.

In my spare time, I enjoy trail running, cycling, photography, training for my next mountaineering objective, and general tomfoolery.

Backpacking & Guiding Experience:

  • Lead 4 group trips to Nepal to visit and experience sustainable-development initiatives to prevent trafficking
  • Worked for REI for 5 years as a camping specialist. I helped outfit people for adventures, taught classes for REI’s Outdoor School, and wrote the company’s pack fit training materials (a good fitting backpack is everything!). I also received REI’s Anderson Award for Atlanta.
  • Lead students on week-long backpacking & rafting trips in western Pennsylvania.
  • Traveled to 17 countries and arranged international logistics.
  • Summited Mt. Rainier, Mt. Shasta, and trekked to Annapurna Base Camp.
  • Backpacked extensively in North Carolina, Georgia, Utah, Arizona, Virginia, and Washington and guided friends to some of the very best places along the way.

  1. hello Sarah,

    I like your photo in black and white at Grand Canyon along the Rim Trail. Could you remember the exact location of this photo ? Thank you for your answer. I will visit Grand Canyon next summer. Michael

    1. Hey, that was west of Mather Point along the walking path. You had to climb down a little bit to get to it, but it wasn’t far off at all. Hope that helps 🙂
