Scott Leadingham is a born and raised Washingtonian. He’s a lifelong appreciator of all things outdoors, particularly hiking on mountains, biking on trails, and, for some strange reason, running long distances on trails.

He’s an alumnus of Central Washington University (go Wildcats!) and Indiana University (go Hoosiers!). He’s also an Eagle Scout, yet his knowledge of intricate knots is drastically lacking.

Growing up in North Central Washington at the foot of the great Grand Coulee Dam, he spent summers backpacking in the North Cascades and Pasayten Wilderness.

Fire danger in North Central and North Eastern Washington is very high, prompting the state Department of Natural Resources to upgrade warnings and burn bans.
