10. Ranier, Kilimanjaro, Kinabalu, the Monk, . ADK46, Catskill 3500. White Mt 4000's.
Cinque Terra was a very nice day hike, often along the top of a cliff overlooking the sea.
Many years ago, winter camped several times down to -20F, e.g. at Lake Colden. Hiked above treeline in whiteouts in the Whites (pre-GPS).
Cross-country skiing, occasional downhill skiing. Occasional backpacking, most recently 4 days in the Enchantment Basin (WA). Rarely rock-climbing, canoing, biking.
Best times: 12 days hiking from Chamonix to Zermatt in June-July 2008; see http://hauteroutehiker.wordpress.com/ <p> 4 days in the Enchantments (WA) in Nov 2007. Worst times: having to cancel a climb of Baker on the 3rd day because of throwing up; having the guide cancel a climb of Hood because the snow was too soft.
Hi, I'd like to meet people while being physically active and mentally relaxed.
