I’m Kristin. I’m an author, mother, and long-distance dog musher in Interior Alaska.


I was born in Fort Worth, TX and graduated with honors from The University of Montana with a degree in photojournalism. After writing for several newspapers and magazines, I left the publishing world to lead a life worth writing about - one of adventure. In 2009, I took to the road with my two dogs and drove north to Denali National Park, where my quiet life revolved around the nurturing of 10 dogs and the maintenance of a remote cabin. What was supposed to be a five-month stay turned into years on end, and now I have found and married the love of my life, become the Lead Backcountry Ranger for Denali National Park, and realized my dream of running dogs through the wilderness of Alaska. I finished the 2015 Yukon Quest and the 2016 Iditarod.  


Here is where the mind can walk.
