I've hiked all over New England and parts of the West. I enjoy winter hiking (no bugs!) and am always looking to pick up new skills. I have taken several outdoor survival courses and am a certified Wilderness First Responder.
To see different parts of the country/world and experience that feeling of connection with the natural world that comes with hiking and climbing.
Mt Rainier in Washington state... one of my goals for my 50 state high point challenge. I ended up stuck in a major blizzard at about 11,500 ft and didn't get a chance to summit. Maybe next time!
I'm an avid all-season hiker!
