I'm Jess. So glad you stopped by! 

LOTO aspires to help increase inspiration and connection to the natural world through storytelling, naturalist interpretation and adventure planning powered by our partners at Transcending Typical Adventure Co. I'll be sharing my own adventures in the Field Log.


This is an authentic passion project. One that I hope that is a catalytic enzyme to create your own journeys and increase your motivation to strive to understand and care for our common home. 


It is also part journal and love letter of adventures big and small. My hope is that LOTO spurs you to seek out the magic of the natural world and in doing so that you are renewed. 

Happy Exploring!
