To experience backpacking, meet new friends, and enjoy nature.
Doing 6 days on the John Muir trail in the high Sierras.
I still consider myself a novice since I've only been on 5 trips, one of which was in the Bitter Root Mt. in Montana and the John Muir trail. My 2 longest trips so far.
I just recently remarried after being widowed for 13 years and recently retired.. I'm 63 yrs. old, love to hike, camp, read, garden, and I am trying to pack as much as I can into the years I have left. I'm pretty easy going and love being in nature.
The Indy Backpackers were very friendly and helpful to me with this being my first backpacking experience.
