San Mateo Canyon Wilderness, where I have been searching for steelhead trout for about ten years. Found 'em too.
All of the above, but I prefer strenuous and crazy bushwhacking stuff into places nobody else goes, unless they're with me.
All of the above and 47 other things.
Quite a lot, actually. In this economy I am underemployed so I have a good amount of free time, especially during weekdays, when I'm not working.
I live in the Cleveland National Forest, in Silverado Canyon.
I'm interested in hiking, climbing, peak bagging, geology, history, archaeology, rocks, photography, writing, dancing, playing guitar, racing vintage cars; not necessarily in that order. A day that contains all of the above is a good day!
I've known Joel for years, since his days with the Nature Conservancy. He is one of my favorite people to hike with, knows just about everything about a whole lot of stuff, and will go anywhere. His skills as a naturalist and his ability to identify with and educate any age hiker are unsurpassed. You can't go wrong hiking with Joel. Make a five or ten dollar donation when you hike with him, he runs the entire operation out of his own pocket with little or no grant money or sponsorship of any kind.
