Things I do and places I go

I have some pretty varied interests when it comes to my travels but hiking is my mainstay and something I do almost every day. My favorite hikes tend to include a combination of mountains, big trees, interesting geological features, alpine lakes, and waterfalls. I also regularly volunteer to build affordable houses with Habitat for Humanity affiliates.

When I’m not hiking, I’m usually reading an unusual book, visiting archaeological and historical sites, swimming, or walking on the beach.
