About You

I’m primarily a day hiker and these days operate from a vehicle-accessible campground or cabin (sometimes a hotel!) I’ll usually roam 6-12 miles and almost always travel alone. I have experience backpacking, alpine scrambling and mountaineering, but I was a lot younger then. I want to learn more about ultralight backpacking because I’d like to go on longer trips but my knees won’t support heavy loads anymore. Favorite places are the North Cascades and Olympic Peninsula of Washington, the canyonlands and mountains of Utah and Arizona, and the Dolomites.
