My Locale Humboldt County, CA
About Me I started out backpacking in Southern California mountains at 9 with the Boy Scouts. As a teenager, I spent my summers in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I was a Wilderness Ranger in Kaiser and John Muir Wilderness Areas for five seasons while I went to university. I have since backpacked in different locations around the world - Britain, Scandinavia, Europe, Africa, and Central America - and in the western states of the US. I have supervised Sierra Club Trail Crews and led teen backpacking trips through Arcata High School.
