I've done many AMC hikes over the years and am a certified co-leader. I've also done several backpacking trips in New England and out west. I'd say the most spectacular places I've ever hiked are Tasmania and New Zealand, but I really love the White Mountains right here in New England.
I love day hikes, and I especially enjoy winter day hikes when the air is crystal clear. I also love to backpack and try to take multi-day trips at least a couple of times a year.
Eventually I'd like to complete the 4000 footers in NH, but I'm not in a hurry. Mostly I just want to get out and hike/explore with new people.
Hmm. The Castle Trail to Mt. Jefferson is one of the most strenuous, though not the longest. I've also backpacked at roughly 10,000 feet in CO and put in some 14-15 mile day hikes that were tiring (but great!).
Not sure yet, but maybe!
I love to hike in all 4 seasons and camp and backpack in spring/summer/fall. I get up to the mountains as much as I can and would also love to explore more areas in New England that don't necessarily involve summits.
