Ben Nearingburg is a research scientist/instructor by day, but at most other times he roams the hills of the Canadian Rockies and Columbia ranges. Coming from a background of distance hiking and indoor climbing, Ben has been drawn to the triad of good exercise, fabulous views and great company that mountainous pursuits provide. In 2016 Ben started down the road of becoming a certified hiking guide, to share his passion of the mountains both on and off the written page. He lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
