My Locale Cascades and Oregon Coast Range
About Me I finished grad school in 2006, and my working life began with a job in Honolulu. Since I finished school and gained some free time, my hiking life began as well!
I moved from Honolulu to Portland in the summer of 2007, and I think I like it here in between the mountains.
