I'm a local Southern California hiker, backpacker, snowshoer and camper! I'm obsessed with adventure and always love to try new and exciting things! I hike regularly in the San Gabriel, San Bernardino, San Jacinto, Santa Rosa, San Gorgonio, Eastern Sierra Nevada, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, Sequoia and Yosemite wilderness and mountain areas. I grew up in Canada and have been hiking since I was a kid. I have been organizing and guiding trips in these areas for the last six years. I enjoy having fun! I will always stop for photo ops but enjoy a tough workout! I truly believe in being grateful for all Mother Nature provides us! We have so much right on our doorstep in Southern California! I'm partial to alpine regions but love exploring our local desert surroundings also! I do many solo trips but enjoy exploring with other adventure lovers and groups!
