Genius is truly an understatement to describe Mark and what he does! Over the past few months as I have corresponded with Mark, followed his writings and trail reports, and then been able to get to know him personally, I have found him to be an exceptionally intelligent, extremely gifted and innovative young man, far beyond his years and his peers. When I first found out his age, I can honestly say, I was floored! His skills at writing, trail knowledge and attention to detail are truly astonishing! Then to come and find out that he created this incredible, much needed website at age 13… well, that is remarkable! This website provides such a wonderful public service to so many people, by helping them to get out and experience many of the amazing natural wonders that God has created. By the things Mark has discovered and his subsequent reporting, I have in turn been able to bless many people in my ministry with his discoveries. As you can see, the Lord is already using Mark in great ways to serve and bless others, but I am confident that HE has an even greater future ahead for this young man! Thank you Mark and God bless you for your passion, your leadership and all that you do!
