My favorite outdoor excursion is backpacking. I have backpacked hundreds of miles in the Pacific NW and love to share stories and pass along my passion to others. When I am out with a group in the wilderness, safety is the number one goal and being a member of a team is paramount.
The Northern Olympic Peninsula......beating the tides and the up and downs with rope.
I have lived in PDX 14 years have hiked all non technical glaciated peaks in the NW and have assisted with Mazama BCEP. While keeping safety as the primary goal, I believe one should create a team environment. My long trips include time on PCT.
