Do you enjoy hiking or backpacking or both?

I'm mostly a day hiker, though I'm totally open to backpacking, too.

What do you enjoy most about hiking?

Being “under the trees”… that place of calm flow…

Where are your favorite areas for hiking in the Dayton area?

I'm new to the area and eager to explore.

Where are your favorite areas for hiking outside of the Dayton area?

I loved the magical, fairyland setting of Olympic and the rugged wilderness of Banff. Joshua Tree was wonderfully alien. Manuel Antonio (Costa Rica) was bursting with life.

How did you hear about Dayton Hikers?

I like walking and exploring, wherever that might be. It could be wilderness, or it could be the urban canyons of a city. Someday, perhaps, it will be Mars.
