Briefly describe your backpacking experince.

I have done a few long trips in my life, including the PCT from Crater Lake to northern Washington, most of the John Muir Trail, and the Annapurna and Everest areas. Lots of shorter trips, mostly in California, Oregon and Washington.

What trips would you suggest for the group?

For starters, I would suggest some easy, local trips, such as Skyline to the Sea, Point Reyes, Barlow Flats/Sykes Hot Springs in Big Sur (when the road reopens), etc.

Have you read and agree with the group description?

Yes.

Introduction

I'm a 62 YO environmental professional, photographer, backpacker and whitewater rafter. I was inspired to create this group after many conversations with friends of a similar age who share an interest in reviving a passion for backpacking.
