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

In the last few years we have completed several overnight & multiday backpack trips in places like the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, Na Pali Coast in Kauai, Waimanu Valley Hawaii, National Park of Corsica in France, Grand Canyon (R-R-R) in Arizona, Grand Gulch in Utah, Rae Lakes Loop & part of the John Muir Trail in the High Sierras of California, Southern 28 miles of the Lost Coast in California and hiked in places like the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, Cinque Terre in Italy, Black Forest in Germany, etc.

What's been your favorite destination to date?

Kalalau Trail (Na Pali - Coast) - Kauai & Muliwai Trail (Waimanu Valley) - Hawaii

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

Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu - not so much the hike - more just getting there.

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

Too Many!!


We're 50+, 60+, long time AZ residents and part time Hawaiian residents.
