About the Author

Amber Casali was born in Seattle, Washington. She discovered backpacking in college on a wilderness extension program in Northern California, spending two weeks at a time on the trail and living out of bear canisters. A flurry of travel after college inspired her to jump on the blogging bandwagon. She wrote about eating tapas in Spain, hiking to temples in Thailand, volunteering on farms in Italy, teaching English in South Korea, and soaking in hot springs in Bolivia. After living overseas for a year in a place with only small mountains, Amber missed the big peaks and wild backcountry of the Pacific Northwest and moved back to Seattle in 2012. Since then, she's become an avid hiker and novice mountaineer. When not outside, she works as a writer and editor at a tech marketing agency.
