    • About me: : 5'8", 160, fit, blue eyes/blond hair, french, nature-based spirituality, alternative rock music, and into eating healthy.
    • Favorite Places: : My favorite local place is my backyard, the White Mountains. I hike 4,000 footers and lesser peaks in the area year round. Working on my third round of 4,000 footers. Started a local hiking Facebook Group called Pemi Valley Hikers in 2020. Enjoy cross-country skiing in winter. Spent a hiking vacation in the Tetons last year and loved it! I'm now into exploring National Parks and hut trekking in Europe.
    • Outdoor Experience: : I've been hiking and backpacking for over 40 years. I've backpacked the entire Appalachian Trail, backpacked Vermont's Long Trail twice, summited the 100 highest peaks in New England and completed the Northeast 115 [4,000 footers]! Reached the summit of Island Peak in Nepal, 20,305 feet in 2002. I've reached the summits of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, and the Mexican volcanoes including the now unclimbable, Popo. Tried, but did not reach the summits of Denali (Mt. McKinley) and Aconcagua. It was still an awesome experience.
