I have been hiking since I was a kid. I have always been up for anything from a guided trail walk to an early morning start up Mt. Washington. I do some trail running, and love yoga to stretch out. I have hiked all over New England, and in parts of the midwest, CO and WY.
Like a long day hike (8-10 miles). I have great endurance and enjoy a challenge.
I am currently a day hiker. Would like to work up to back packing. I have this "thing" where I have to see as many sights/trails as I can with the precious time allowed on earth...
Deer Mtn., Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, CO. Approximately, 10,000 ft., about a 6 mile round trip. Done in early spring, trail was mostly snow covered, from ankle to knee length. The hard part was keeping up with a local and dealing with altitude sickness. The elevation was a constant battle, but the best was sledding down some sections on my back pack, Whoopie!
I am a local hikes leader for the Narragansett Chapter of the AMC.
It's always fun to meet new people - especially those who like to get outdoors!
