My Locale Seattle, WA
About Me 58 year old psychologist, married w/ a teenage daughter. In Seattle 27 years. Discovered backpacking in 2007, with a walk around Mt. Rainier on the Wonderland Trail. Ever since, I've cherished at least one long hike per summer: Eagle Cap Wilderness, Olympic Nat. Park, 3 Sisters, N. Cascades Nat. Park, PCT sections in WA state, etc. No stopping me now. Pack gets lighter every year, as the joints and bones get older.
