About Expert: Kirsten Rechnitz

Kirsten Rechnitz holds B.A. degrees from Vanderbilt University in Political Science and Cognitive Anthropology, and has been studying wilderness living and outdoor survival for the last decade. Her expertise lies in the arid Southwest, where the environment can change substantially within a day's trek; from high desert terrain and imposing slickrock canyons to mountainous ridgtops with bounteous ponderosa pines, and the speckling of precious lakes, creeks and springs. Most recently, she worked as a Senior Instructor for the Boulder Outdoor Survival School where she instucted 7, 14, and 28 day survival expeditions. She draws her inspiration from the beauty of the elements and their powerful ways.
