Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?

I live on the Front Range and have for forty years. I heard of WSA from my meetup hiking friends.

How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?

I hike several times week. I go backpacking several times a year. I run a river or two every year. And I do a lot of trail building, too.

What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?

I can tell you lots about the Colorado Trail (I work on it several weeks every summer). My geographical location does not make that seem very practical, however.

Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?

Weekend activities work best for me. I am retired but I do lots of volunteer work. My schedule is pretty open.

After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?

I am a hike leader for a couple meetups in the Denver area. We get out to Utah canyons several times a year. I can tell you more than you want to know about designing optics for space probes. I probably won't, tho.


I live in the foothills of the front range. I get out to the canyon country as often as I can for backpacking, hiking, river running etc.
