I live in Raleigh around the Lake Lynn area.
Hiking, backpacking, camping and nature photography.
Enjoyed hiking the Maroon Bells outside of Aspen.
I walk about 4 miles everyday but on trails. I am reasonably fit so I feel good about taking on a strenous hike. I hope to learn about the equipment I need to backpack and camp and hopefully do it with the group so I learn what it takes to strike out on my own or with a friend.
I am 64 and semiretired and have done some hiking but no backpacking or camping. I think it would fun to do so I am learning what it takes to do so. Found out about the group by attending a class on national parks of the southeast at the Raleigh REI.
