Hi, welcome to my new site. First I want to introduce myself. My name is Klaus, and live on the coast in Malibu, California. I have spent a lot of time in the outdoors. As a teenager, I hitch-hiked across the continent, from Buenos Aires to the border with Canada. Often hiked, biked and camped out in many areas of South America, kayaked in lakes, rivers and along the sea, traveled extensively throughout the US and the world, climbed mountains in several continents, and learned to admire and develope a deep love and respect for nature and it's fragil beauty. It's simple: The more you observe and understand something, the more you love it, and then care about it. Those experiences have built the foundation for my passion: to document the inspiration I find in Nature.
I hope you enjoy some of the moments of my journey throughout this wonderful wild world, as much as I enjoyed sharing it.
