I am a Salt Lake resident 9 months out of the year while in school and am only beginning to explore the wealth of hiking opportunities, but would prefer to do so with likeminded folks.

Probably the Swiss Alps and the German Black Forest, but they are not touchstones for other locales. I am enthralled by all terrains -- including the desert of the Texas Big Bend country.
I was introduced to hiking as a child and it remains to this day one of those few activities where I find pure peace and nourishment of the soul.
