Writer . Adventurer . Photographer

I'm Krista. I report, write and edit stories about people, places and the natural world. I also write a monthly online column for Outside magazine about kids and the outdoors. Additionally, my words and photographs have been published by Adventure Journal, The Atlantic, bioGraphic, FiveThirtyEight, Hakai, National Geographic News, Orion, Pacific Standard, Smithsonian, and a number of other magazines and websites.


Before becoming a freelance journalist, I worked as a canoe and kayak guide, trail builder, farmer and teacher. I'm currently based in Durango, Colorado.
