Hello, I’m Guy Starbuck. I love exploring backcountry locations in the deserts and mountains of the Western United States. Most of my adventures are hikes to historical mines, Native American rock art sites, and anything else with some history. For me, the more remote the site is, the better. Click on the links below to come along with me on an adventure!
Please consider supporting my work.
New posts usually every other Friday at 7am.
I’m having some issues with my site. I will need to take it offline to work on it for a few days.
