Chelsey Cook is a gear editor for ExplorersWeb. She's been writing and editing adventure and conservation articles for the last five years. Beyond being a writer, Chelsey is a mountain guide, and an avid human-powered athlete and traveler. She's pulled climbers out of crevasses at 13,000 feet on Denali, gotten trench foot during a packrafting misadventure above the Arctic Circle, had snowball fights with Quechua children in Peru, raced winter ultramarathons in Alaska, and gotten the van she lived in for six years stuck on more than one backroad in Utah. Based in Alaska, Chelsey can be found flying her bushplane up the neighborhood glacier, floating a river after work, or exploring somewhere deep in the tundra when she's not traveling abroad.
