What would you consider your 'hiking style' and ability? Have you done hikes in the mountains?

I am very experienced in mountain hiking, having done many Rockies trails as well as international e.g. Kilimanjaro and Andes. I like to get to the most scenic spots quickly, so enjoy scrambles, yet to take time to "take it all in.

What do you like to photograph in the mountains?

Interesting shapes, patterns, coloration, especially in rocky areas above treeline, though I find mature and bird laden trees also worthy subjects. River valleys such as the Athabasca also offer lots to capture.

Do you have any mountain locations you would like to visit and photograph?

Haven't done Skyline Trail in Jasper and much of Icefields Parkway. Certainly the Kootenay Plains area is on my map. Prefer to do areas not so far away.

What is your 'camping style'? Are you into tenting? Hostelling? Or hotel/motel?

I love camping, and am a long time hostel member, but will take an affordable motel on occasion.

Introduction

I am an outdoorsman, and love getting off the beaten path. Like others in this group, I prefer to take in what's along the hiking trail with my senses, a camera, binoculars and to share with others.

What Philip is saying about this Meetup Group

Great bunch of folks!
