For years I have wandered down paths and trails. My hikes began as a child in the state parks in Indiana. My family would go to parks on Sundays all year round, sun or snow. Since moving to California I venture around the state, but especially the 100's of Regional, National and State parks and open spaces in the Bay area for day hikes. My friend Pat Roberts and I have taken 100's, maybe 1000's of trail and path pictures. These pictures became the foundation for Secret Paths in the Forest, a CD-ROM title we designed for girls, published under the Purple Moon imprint.
