Where is your favorite place to backpack?

I have only backpacked several times along different parts of the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail. I am interested in learning more about it and trying different places. I like to travel. I am afraid to backpack by myself and it is difficult to find people who want to do it in this area.

What adventures are you interested in?

Where/what is your favorite dayhike?

I enjoy hiking through the state parks, especially Kooser, Laurel Hill, Ohiopyle, Cook Forest and McConnells Mill and Forbes State Forest......White Tail Trail, Pine Knob, Bear Run, to name a few. Also really like Coopers Rock in West Virginia. I also had the opportunity to hike all around Yosemite National Park and Mammoth Lakes for a week a couple of years ago. The highlight was when my youngest son and myself did the 17-mile trek to the top of Half Dome. It was awesome and I'll never forget it! I have also done a lot of hiking in Great Smokey National Park, especially a couple of great hikes to different waterfalls. A couple of years ago, when we were in Stowe, Vermont, I hiked to the top of Mt. Mansfield.........very cool!

Where would you like to go?

I live outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I enjoy trying new places to hike and meeting new people.
