Love the beauty and serenity of the mountains. Also good way to stay in shape and socialize with like-minded folks.
Mt. Washington (NH), Mt. Katahdin (ME), Zugspitze (Germany), Torres del Paine (Patagonia), Black Peak (WA-North Cascades)
See above, plus have been to other countries in Europe, New Zealand (South Is.), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Puerto Rico (semi-int'l) BVI, Bonaire, Bermuda, Bolivia, Peru, Canada, Iceland, Cozumel. Future destinations include Scandinavian countries (esp. Norway), Africa, Australia, Borneo, South Pacific, Far East incl. Tibet/Nepal & others, Japan, South Pacific, more of Caribbean.
Val and some of others I met at native German speakers meetup last night. Would like to join to get back to spending more time in the mountains again; the last few years have found me more focused on sailing, where you frequently don't get enough physical exercise.
Tall 50 y.o. East coast transplant originally from Austria (Graz, same hometown as Val). Active in the outdoors all my life, mostly hiking.
