About Rusty Glessner
You may not recognize my name. But if you travel the Pennsylvania Turnpike you've seen my photos on billboards.
If you’ve ever picked up a copy of Pennsylvania Magazine, you’ve seen my photos on the cover or inside pages.
Ever flipped through a hiking guide at your local bookstore? I contributed nearly 40 photos to this one, which came out in April of 2018.
But what about the backstory behind all those photos?
How do you find all these incredible places?
Those are the kind of emails I get every week.
So I decided a website designed to share that sort of information was in order.
