Living in and around Chicago all my life, the sweltering vistas of the summer mountains call to me so I try and get out as much as possible. However, I recently enjoyed a winter meetup when we broke sub-zero temps, too. I can be FAIRLY adventurous.
I have been on two backcountry hiking/camping excursions. My first trip was a six-day hike through mighty Yosemite and, three years later, I was fortunate enough to see Rocky Mountain National Park before it was devastated by the Summer 2013 storms. I've also done some local, day-hiking in the Indiana Dunes, Starved Rock and up in Wisco as well.
