I like the combination of physical challenge, mental release and constantly being awed by North Carolina's beauty.
Helping others discover and enjoy the experience of seeing North Carolina in a whole new way.
I grew up in Colorado, and while I hiked some as a kid, it wasn't until moving to North Carolina in 1992 that I became an avid hiker.
I've written two books on exploring the state's trails ("100 Classic Hikes in North Carolina" and "Backpacking North Carolina") and have been a coach for CureSearch for Children's Cancer's Ultimate Hike program for three years.
