I am 36 years old. I live in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. I ran cross-country for Muhlenberg College back in the day. I love to ski, run, and hike. I have lead trips on the AT from Shenandoah, VA to the NH's Mount Moosilauke. I also really like to take photographs. I try to blend hiking and photography when possible. www.SalaniPhotography.com is my website.
