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

I've been backpacking since the early 70's. Along with the hiking and backpacking, for many years I taught whitewater kayaking and paddled throughout the west. Wilderness river kayak trips on the San Juan River and the Green River through the Desolation and Gray Canyons in Utah among others. I've done backpacking or hiking trips in the San Juans Mountains, the Grand Canyon, The Superstitions, Aravaipa Canyon and several wilderness areas in New Mexico and hiking and camping in several mountain ranges in Montana

What's been your favorite destination to date?

Hard to say. But, the place I go back to most often is Aravaipa Canyon

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

South Rim to North Rim in the Grand Canyon. A lot of miles and elevation in that day.

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

There are several places in NM, CA, UT, NV and CO that I haven't been to yet.
