What is your hiking experience? (e.g. how long have you been hiking, how often do you get out , where are some of your favorite places, etc.)

I've been hiking in California since childhood and especially love the High Sierra and deserts. I've more recently been exploring the Whites.

What type of hikes do you like best? (e.g. day hikes, overnight backpacks, hikes that may involve off-trail "bushwhacking", etc.)

I Love overnight backpacking but I like day hikes too. I'm Interested in doing more off-trail.

What are your hiking goals? (e.g. just like hiking, enjoy being outdoors, looking to finish one of the "lists", etc.)

I like the exercise but also just being up in the mountains--it's especially nice to take it all in while resting/eating/camping along the way. I wouldn't mind ticking some trails or peaks off the bucket list but that's not the top priority.

What is the most strenuous/difficult hike that you have done? What made it so tough?

Mount Whitney (14,500'). The hard part was the thin air and doing it all in a single day rather than overnight.

Do you have any outdoor leadership experience? Would you be interested in organizing and leading your own events with the Random Hikers??

Perhaps after doing several hikes and becoming more familiar with the area.
