I enjoy exploring the incredible beauty surrounding us here in the Blue Ridge Mountains and love getting together with folks to see what kind of adventures are out there to be had.

What are your favorite outdoor activities?

So far, it's mostly been hiking but I'm open to about anything.

Where is the coolest place you've been?

I don't really have favorites, but probably my time in Brazil - the wild tour in the Pantanal, the breathtaking time in Chapada dos Guimaraes, and the magical journeying around Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park.

What's the most adventurous thing you've done?

Possibly taking the Black Abyss Tour abseiling down into the glowworm caves near Waitomo, New Zealand and black water rafting by the lights of the glowworms.

Where is your favorite getaway spot?

Anywhere in nature that is free from the noise of "civilization".

How did you hear about Outdoor Club South?

Checking out outdoor meetup groups around Asheville.

    Hiking with cameras

    Hi Ayela. We've met in Easy Walkers. Next time I see you I will introduce us. We take lots of pictures of flowers when in bloom.

    We enjoyed it too. Great lunch. Carly's still in awe of meeting her middle school band director's professor. Thanks for the history on the Hob Nob Barn. Definitely one worth trying out. Ryan sounded enthusiastic about the Coyote Kitchen, only about 1-2 miles from his dorm. See you on the trail.

    I'm glad I could contribute something to the discussion and hope that it was at least in some way appreciated. I hadn't expected to go down the road I did but I'm thankful everyone was receptive. Thanks and I hope to contribute more in the future.
