Mark is a freshman from the Bay Area majoring in mechanical engineering and minoring in classical perspectives, because doing just engineering would be too practical. He enjoys long walks on the beach, longer walks through the foothills, and really long walks in the mountains. Mark also enjoys sharing his opinions on backpacking gear, niche music genres, tools, and postmodern books, but feel free to ignore him once he’s 10 minutes into a rant about Charles Mingus or why the Half Dome 2+ tent is the greatest tent ever (it seriously is).
Mark regrets that the only photo of him on Whitney looks like him in front of a rock and a fog bank. He has included another picture of the same sunrise for your viewing pleasure.
