My Locale Rocky Mountains
About Me Growing up in Montana, I was immersed in the outdoors since day one and have been backpacking for about 55 years, both as an avocation and for a few years professionally for the Forest Service. I also enjoy snowshoeing, nordic & alpine skiing, cycling, kayaking, photography, and solo trips.
