winter camping

Adults (18+)


Grew up in NH climbing/camping in the Whites starting with Mt. Washington when I was 8. Enjoyed backpacking trips to Torres Del Paine, Sequoia, Canadian Rockies, Mount Whitney and about every mountain in NE. Like to find new places or ways to hike in CT to keep it interesting and use local hikes to stay in shape for more challenging adventures. Love to introduce people to climbing, backpacking, and paddling. . Look forward to meeting new friends with the CT AMC and seeing my CHA friends.
