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

I've backpacked in the Superstitions and the Grand Canyon. Vacationed at Yosemite in June and did lots of hiking . . loved it, but Half Dome wasn't open yet. Dreaming about doing the Wonderland Trail in Washington my home state.

What's been your favorite destination to date?

In Arizona . . the Grand Canyon and Flatiron in the Superstitions. The Tour du Mont Blanc in Europe.

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

Probably the trek in Nepal was the toughest, everyone in the group including me was sick with upper respiratory bug.

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

The Wonderland Trail and the John Muir Trail are my goals. Really need to get some backpacking in to prepare


Once I moved to this sunny weather I started hiking and doing some backpacking. Love to get out in nature and hike.

What Karen is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group and thanks to Jim for leading the hike!
