Hometown: Chicago - East Roger's Park
July 10, 2008
The nesting cranes at Devils Lake are mystical, prehistoric. April, May-ish. Caving is cool in the Winter, x/c ski, downhill ski. Scuba in warm water. Native American sites. The Lakota SunDance ceremony in early July is not-to-be-missed.
Fall is good climbing season, always open to new partners. Tossing the football around. Starved Rock is wonderful too.
I play the Native American flute, which I always bring along. And a Drum. Always nice to jam casual with others.I've got a really good underwater camera. Nice, thoughtful & cheerful people help the experience. A sense of wonder.
Taught Rock climbing. Did some teaching of canoeing. Awesome photographer.
I want to do more than bike and rock climb, and I like people. I used to backpack, and still have all the gear, but once I got addicted to climbing 25 years ago....
