I'm Krista. I write and report stories about people, places, and the natural world. Formally, I'm a correspondent at High Country News, a non-profit environmental news magazine once called "a scrappy institution that produces some of the finest journalism in the American West." My work has also been published by Adventure Journal, The Atlantic, FiveThirtyEight, Hakai, National Geographic News, Outside, 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.
