Leaf Lovetree

Tour Guide





Who is Leaf?

Leaf Eichten Lovetree grew up in the Great Prairies and Great Lakes Region of the USA in a big, supportive family. Of all of Leaf’s lifelong interests, bicycling is probably the greatest. When he was a French major in college, he was quite possibly the happiest young lad in the world when he took his bike to France and toured the countryside. After returning to the States, he landed a job as a camp counselor and art instructor at Camp Nor’wester in the San Juan Islands. He married a Pacific Northwesterner, and they have two children. Leaf and his wife are both educators. Now that the Olympic Peninsula is home, he loves to tour the area and the nearby San Juan Islands. Over the years he has biked thousands of miles and loves sharing this joy with his children. Leaf also likes to compose music, write poetry, and sing in choir.
