I'm a moderate/advanced hiker with backpacking, camping, and hiking experience. Favorite places include Yosemite and Joshua Tree. I try to get out once or twice a month during the spring and summer months. Just did Mt. Waumbek last weekend.
These days I prefer day hikes, 6 to 12 miles with elevation is great.
Stay in shape, meet new people, network, explore nature.
I backpacked Lost Coast and hiked Half Dome/Yosemite, and both were difficult. Lost Coast was mentally hard, as we hiked on a rocky beach for 3 days with no change in scenery. Half dome..enough said.
No, leading hikes is not for me.
Hello - I've been hiking for 10 years or so, mostly in California, but recently in Mass.
