What are your favorite outdoor activities?

Kayaking, backpacking, and camping with others of like mind. I love learning about the geology of an area before visiting it.

Where is the coolest place you've been?

Climbing out of the Grand Canyon on the Bright Angel Trail. Although I'm more a kayaker than a backpacker, it was the formations and history of the place that grabbed me even more than the big waters of the Colorado River.

What's the most adventurous thing you've done?

I went white water kayaking in an area with Class IV rapids. I was unfamiliar with the area and no one knew where I was. 'Twas stupid. Also, backpacking alone, though I much prefer backpacking with others.

Where is your favorite getaway spot?

Kayaking alone in the early morning, experiencing the yin of the ripples created by the bow of my boat as it cuts through the water, hearing the water drip from my paddle with each new stroke.
