I’m Misti and I’ve been writing this blog in some format since 2002. Blogging has changed a whole lot since then and my blog has evolved over time as well. I’ve always written a little bit about everything, so you’ll find writings from my garden, hiking, to posts about my family here.

I write from just outside of Houston, Texas and was born in Texas, but we spent 2002-2010 living in various parts of Florida. Florida still holds my heart in many ways!

A few more tidbits you should know:

      • We thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2010.
      • Then we thru-hiked the Florida Trail in 2011
      • We became parents to Forest in September 2014.
      • How my blog got its name.
      • Wildscape Photo is our photography site. It needs some updating, but we’d love to sell your a photograph! Or, I’d love to do a portrait session with you and/or your family!
      • Ghost Orchids are an interest of ours, and we documented over 600 previously unknown plants in 2007.
      • You can reach me via email at oceanicwilderness at gmail dot com. Or leave me a message down below and I’ll respond to you via email.

    I am an arachnologist from Basel, Switzerland, specializing in feeding ecology of spiders. I would like to discuss with you about your photos depicting a Dolomedes spider devouring a fish. Would you please contact me:
    I do not want your photo. I just want to know more about what you have witnessed. Thanks!
    Regards, Martin

    Hey there – I hiked the AT in 2012 and am considering a 2-3 week section of the Florida Trail in Feb/March next year – any sections that you could recommend as being the best and worth using that time to complete?
    Any help would be appreciated!
