Scott's Wish List-Hikes (Mostly Long Distance)

This is my wish list of the top hikes I hope to so within my lifetime. All these are hopefully in reach and I hope to get as many as I can, though my family (wife + kids) are my #1 responsibility and their needs come first.

Hikes were selected for various reasons. Some are on the list simply because they are beautiful, some are on the list because they would be a great challenge for me, some are on the list because they are easy enough that I can climb with my wife and kids, some are on the list for their history, some are on the list just for the heck of it. Some are well known and some are very little known, so there are a variety of hikes that I want to do.

Note: This list only includes the wish list since this page was created. Previously, I have already completed many hikes which were on old wish list, thus there is an absence of hikes listed in my favorite areas (since I've already completed them).

The Hikes List was created on September 4 2012, and expanded a few times since then.

When I complete each of the canyons on this list, it will be noted with a date.
