  • Misti Self Portrait on Katahdin

      Updated July 2015

      Hello! Thanks for stopping by to read!

      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.

      Hello,
      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: martin.nyffeler@unibas.ch
      I do not want your photo. I just want to know more about what you have witnessed. Thanks!
      Regards, Martin

      Your photos are incredible — wildlife photography is my fantasy job! I’m definitely putting you in my reader!

      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!

      Thanks.
