About the Author

Tim Ernst is a native of Fayetteville and lifelong resident of his most favorite state, Arkansas.
He made his first backpacking trip in the spring of 1974 with a Wal Mart backpack and an army surplus mummy bag filled with chicken feathers. There were no hiking trails back then. He bushwhacked alone following creeks, ridges, and a few forest roads for 125 miles from Lake Ft. Smith State Park to near the community of Ben Hur. The route he pioneered then became the framework for the Ozark Highlands Trail.
His latest long journey was just this past February (2021), when he became the first to travel on foot from the source of the mighty Buffalo River high in the Ozarks, to the mouth of the Buffalo at the White River—some 150+ miles downstream. (A two-week trek, about half established trail and half bushwhacking along the river corridor.)
In the meantime Tim has produced twenty coffee table picture books during a 46-year nature photography career, which included a few hikes along the way.
