Tell us about your backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking experience.

Update - I'm been hiking pretty regularly over the past 4 years and gotten involve in canyoneering a couple years ago. I'm looking to expand my experience to include bigger canyons as well as backpacking.

What's been your favorite destination to date?

That's a tough choice. My over all favorite place so far has been Yosemite (took my first trip there in December, 2011) and it was simply stunning. Zion canyon comes in second.

What's been your toughest trip in the last 2 years? Why?

Toughest was a canyon in southern Utah called "Monkey Business". It wasn't terribly difficult from a technical point of view, but it was a long day that involved a lot stemming and trying to squeeze down in to small slots. It became really exhausting after doing that for hours on end, especially since we hadn't really done a lot of stemming at that point.

Where would you like to go backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking that you haven't gone?

Backpacking? anywhere. Canyoneering? back to Zion or Neon in the Escalante area. Hiking? grand canyon, maybe Havasupai


Hi I'm Lawrence, I've been doing a lot of hiking with several other hiking groups in the valley and have gotten into canyoneering for the past couple of years. I'm looking forward to doing more canyons and getting into backpacking as well.
