Bridget Crocker is an outdoor travel writer who has guided remote river expeditions down many of the world’s greatest river canyons in far-flung regions of Zambia, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, India and the Western United States.
As a young girl growing up on the banks of Wyoming’s Snake River, Bridget developed a relationship with water and nature that is at the heart of her writing. She is a contributing author to Lonely Planet guidebooks and Travel Anthology and The Best Women’s Travel Writing series from Travelers’ Tales. Her work has been featured in magazines including Westways, Men’s Journal, National Geographic Adventure, Trail Runner, Paddler, Outside, SNEWS and Vela among others. Bridget also writes for the outdoor clothing company, Patagonia.
Bridget’s travel background combined with formal studies in Anthropology and Native American Studies have shaped her ability to integrate the natural and cultural spirit of varying landscapes into her writing; she also holds a degree in English Literature from Montana State University and is an alum of Book Passage Travel Writing and Photography Conference.
Bridget lives on the edge of the continent in Southern California with her husband and two daughters, and chronicles the family’s travels on her blog, The Adventures of Little Mama.
