Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park was particularly difficult for me because of the sudden elevation gain in starting, my body didn't react well to the elevation that weekend, but it's the only time I've experienced high elevation sickness in hiking other peaks.
I was taken on a backpacking trip to Yosemite National Park when I was thirteen and since have always been able to turn to nature for peace and contemplation.
It's a tie between the top of Yosemite Falls, a mesa above cottonwood creek in the Grand Canyon, and Mooney Falls in the Havasupai Indian Reservation
The Red Rock Wilderness, or Lake Mead, I've never been to either and want some awesome desert hiking.
To get in on the fun and adventure that group hosts and to contribute what experience and knowledge I have to others, and maybe meet a cute date :) .
I have a passion for nature, and I find my peace in the outdoors. I just moved from Salt Lake City and am excited to explore some desert hikes with other nature lovers.
