Welcome to the Unconventional Explorer!

Welcome! My name's Austin. I was born and raised on the Nevada desert, where my love for ghost towns and exploration began. In 2013 I created Nevada Expeditions to share the Silver State's historic places through photographs I've taken. Naturally, my love for exploring isn't restricted by state lines, and as I've gotten older and spent more time in other states, I've started traveling and photographing historic places there as well.

The Unconventional Explorer is designed as somewhat of a companion page to Nevada Expeditions. Both pages follow an identical format and will link back and forth freely between related places. I hope you enjoy this journey, and be sure to check back soon to see new places.

Come on, let's go explore!
