My name is Mike Gourley. Also known as Mountain Hawk, a name given to me by a Native American Elder several years ago. I am an avid hiker and have been into photography for about 10 years. I have gotten more serious about my photography the last couple years and have already learned a lot in the short time I have been on Red Bubble. I lived most of my life in Ohio and spent a couple years in Utah prior to moving to Tennessee last fall.
