Tell us what level hiking / walking / backpacking / climbing you are experience and / or interested in! Rate yourself -- 1 is Rail-Trail Experience, 10 is Mt. Rainier!

I would say I am a level 6 hiker. Most of my hiking has been in the Adirondaks, Whites and Green Mountains.

Tell us about your favorite hikes and / or times walking in the woods!

Skiing into Avalanche Lake is one of my favorite times in the woods.

Are you an ADK 46er? Catskill 35er? Any other hiking accomplishments you would like to share?

I've climbed 26 of the Adirondack High Peaks, so far.

What other outdoor activities do you like? Water sports? Rock climbing? Backpacking? Biking? Alpine / Snowboarding / Telemark / X-Country Skiing?

Backpacking, Mtn. Biking, Back-country skiing, alpine skiing, snowshoeing.

Tell us about your best and worst time out on the trail ...

Best Hike:Winter hike up Algonquin. It snowed the first 3 miles in, when we got above tree-line we were above the snow clouds in bright sunshine with a breathtaking view! Worst hike: Getting eaten alive in the Santanonis by black flies


To get out on the trail with other people that enjoy the mountains like I do.
