Some words Before More Words: Still discovering the tensile strength of my heart.
Aspirations: Explore the inspiring west coast. I would love to have hiking buddies for peaks in the Eastern Sierras.
A Few Words: Back in D.C. until spring. I'm a bit hard on my shoes. Vessel-dilation with a camel back! I currently endurance hike but I am open to mountaineering and maybe if I get the gumption, climbing. I appreciate people that like elevation gain, that beautiful sound of winds in the cedars and pines and salt sweats. :-) Currently prefer all-day hiking and camping. I hope that gives some indication of skill level. I don't know the rating equivalent...
I have yet to contribute a helpful page here on SP because I'm a newb, but I will try to make a page that is helpful. I appreciate folks on SP that share great info, encouragement and visuals. What a great site!
