Johnie Gall is a writer, photographer, and environmental advocate who has been penning work for various outdoor publications and brands for the better part of a decade. She’s the founder of Dirtbag Darling, and splits her time between coasts and the back of the Sprinter van she rebuilt with her husband. Notebook in hand, she’s a professional storyteller on a perpetual search for inspiration and the stories that explore the relationship between humans and the environment, from the wild peaks of the New Zealand backcountry to the silty canyons of Big Bend.

Dirtbag Darling is an online adventure journal, one half dispatches from the wild and one half interviews with outdoor advocates working toward a greater good, pursuing the unprofitable, conquering the useless, and defending the fun — Johnie believes when more people get outdoors, there will be more people invested in the care and conservation of wild places. Adventure can be noble and serious, but mostly we do it because it’s a good time. Maybe we can accomplish something good for the planet while we’re at it.
