What is the most difficult hike you have ever done?

Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park was particularly difficult for me because of the sudden elevation gain in starting, my body didn't react well to the elevation that weekend, but it's the only time I've experienced high elevation sickness in hiking other peaks.

How did you get started hiking, or what has gotten you back in to it?

I was taken on a backpacking trip to Yosemite National Park when I was thirteen and since have always been able to turn to nature for peace and contemplation.

Where is the most scenic place you've ever hiked or camped?

It's a tie between the top of Yosemite Falls, a mesa above cottonwood creek in the Grand Canyon, and Mooney Falls in the Havasupai Indian Reservation

Where would you most like the group to go on an outing?

The Red Rock Wilderness, or Lake Mead, I've never been to either and want some awesome desert hiking.

Why are you joining VegasHikers?

To get in on the fun and adventure that group hosts and to contribute what experience and knowledge I have to others .


I have a passion for nature, and I find my peace in the outdoors. I just moved from Salt Lake City and am excited to explore some desert hikes with other nature lovers.
