About us

Hi, we are Masako & Erik, the couple behind Mountain Penguin.
Together, we have hiked…

The resilient hiker who gets spider webs and tree branches on his face all the time.
Always geeking out about the latest gadgets and hiking/camping gear.
Most importantly, the patient husband who kindly stops every 5 minutes and makes whatever pose Masako tells him to for her millions of photos to post on the Mountain Penguin website.

The creator of all content on the Mountain Penguin website.
Unstoppable photo-taker wherever she goes, always chased by sorting out the hundreds of photos she takes a day.
An Enthusiast of moss and waterfalls.
