Wes Loder

Weisenberg Township, PA

Reader & Writer



My name is Michael Wescott Loder, but I am usually called Wes. I was born in Pennsylvania. I have hiked, climbed and caved my way across the United States, been an Air Force officer, photographer, park naturalist--and an academic librarian for more than 30 years. I have worked in eight different states, but am now retired and live with my wife next to the family farm in a passive-solar, off-grid house we designed ourselves. There I garden, write, play the Highland Bagpipe and watch my grandchildren grow.
