β€œThe beauty is in the walking -- we are betrayed by destinations.” 

Gwyn Thomas, Welsh Poet

After years of building a career and raising a family,  I retired "to the outdoors" and took up long-distance walking, wilderness canoeing, and the occasional backpacking trip.  I have been a national leader for the Sierra Club Outings - running service trips in national parks in the west; and a park patrol volunteer near my home in Colorado.   What I have enjoyed the most  in recent years has been my end-to-end trek in Great Britain. 

I was born in 1944...and because of these adventures I feel better physically and emotionally than I have in years.
