Past experience includes Baxter State Park, Bryce Canyon, a dormant volcano in St. Kitt’s, and a rain forest in Panama. Since 2008, all of my experience has been in the Adirondacks: Crane, Moose, Hadley, Bald Head, Thompson's, Indian Head, Spruce, Tongue, Peaked, Blue Mtn, and Mt. Marcy and other assorted trails. So far, all of these are my favorite places.
My experience is limited to day hikes/snowshoeing. Enjoyed bushwhacking, though I was not leading. No overnight backpacks yet, but interested.
To meet like-minded enthusiasts, build my skills and confidence, and venture out to enjoy the wilderness as much as my schedule and budget will allow.
Mt. Marcy, July 2011. From Upper Works Road, near Tahawus. 20.4 miles round trip in 12.5 hours, including lunch at the top and breaks. Rugged, rocky terrain. Spectacular day!
Not just yet.
Hi, I enjoy being outdoors in any season, though I am partial to cooler weather. I love hiking and snowshoeing, and I am always astounded at the beauty of nature. I'd like to join this group to make friends to enjoy these activities with.
