I am a professional hiking and climbing guide. Have taught and led snowcamping, rock climbing, backpacking, and high altitude treks around the world. At home, I love to take it easy and just get out and enjoy the beautiful area we live in and get to know other locals.
25,000 ft. Not kidding. :-)
Yep, I have taught and written articles about the 10 Essentials.
Love hiking, especially summiting peaks, whether non-technical or technical.
Kind of depends on the hike. With a light pack on easy terrain, I can be fast. With a heavier pack on steeper terrain, I can often be one of the slower (but steady) participants.
Hello! I am a California transplant that has just relocated to Bend. I am an avid hiker, backpacker, mountaineer and looking forward to exploring the Bend area!
