A perfect day for Ken Campbell is one that is spent outdoors. Ken owns and operates Azimuth Expeditions, a paddle sports outfitter based in Tacoma, and spends as much time as possible in the wilderness backcountry of the Pacific Northwest. His travels around Mount Rainier have included summit climbs and significant chunks of the Wonderland Trail. Over the past 25 years, he has written about climbing, paddling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and backpacking for a variety of publications including the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Sea Kayaker magazine and Sports Etc, and he's published five books on sea kayaking (four of which are still in print.) He lives at Salmon Beach, amid the stunning scenery of the Tacoma Narrows, with his wife, Mary, and their four year-old son, Micah. When he's not "out there," he's writing about where he's been as well as what he's got coming up, here at visitrainier and at his blog, lastwilderness.blogspot.com.
