I grew up in New Hampshire and hiked many of the whites as a kid, but have been living in Los Angles for many years, so my more recent hikes were all out in the desert. I am an experienced hiker. Have hiked Washington many times, along with other higher mountains.
I go hiking so that I can get out of the city and into nature. I prefer longer fairly strenuous hikes but I am not one of those people that gets upset if the rest of the group is too slow. If I feel refreshed and my legs are tired at the end of the hike I feel satisfied.
yes. I have all the gear for winter mountaineering, but I'm not sure I like being above treeline in 15 degree weather. I say that now, but next winter I'm sure I will do a few hikes like that.
I enjoy hikes that are 12 miles - 17 miles.
no thank you
I like to hike
