Briefly describe your backpacking experince.

I've spent about 750 days backpacking in the Sierra. I like frequent layover days. I don't mind strenuous hikes at a slow pace, but I am not a trail pounder. I backpack to enjoy the granite, lakes and streams of the Sierra, not to rack up 20 mile days.

What trips would you suggest for the group?

Anything in the Emigrant, Hoover, or Yosemite wilderness. I prefer trips after July 31st to avoid mosquitos.

Have you read and agree with the group description?

No answer yet


I'm retired and have been a backpacker since I was 10 years old. I prefer trips in the Sierra longer than four days. I prefer hiking no more than six miles per day.
