Hiker Public Profile


Why I hike: Hiking allows your genuine, unpretentious self to emerge. You're not just looking at the scenery - you ARE PART of the scenery: acknowledging, interacting, discovering. Kudos to Alex for encouraging us to remain connected to our natural communities!

Organizer for These Hiking Groups

  • Winter Snowshoe Hikes/Campouts
  • Group description: If you own snowshoes and/or enjoy backcountry nordic skiing, this group might be for you. I'd like to plan Truckee/Tahoe snowshoe hikes (maybe also up north towards Lassen) this season 2010-2011. Members are not expected to be triathletes, but should be sufficiently fit to handle cold weather challenges. As excursions may include overnighters, I'd like to invite those who are conservation-minded and wouldn't think twice about picking up garbage they might see on the trail. Weekday trips are also in the works.

Then leave early on Friday, and do another hike either along the West side of the lake or back up along the 80 corridor. Limiting this trip to 4 people, max 2 cars (incl. mine) as that is the limit for parking at my condo. Unfortunately, I live near Calistoga, so unless you live nearby, you'll have to carpool w/ others. Overnight accommodations will be camping style - bring your own sleeping bag and mat. We'll be staying at my unfurnished condo in Central Truckee. This is not open to beginner outdoorspeople, and you should have your own gear ready (there isn't time to stop somewhere to rent your showshoes or buy winter gear at REI), be in decent cardiovascular condition, as well as bright-eyed a...
