About Me

I am a single guy with two beautiful daughters with kids of their own, fully retiring to follow my passion; exploring the mountains and canyons of the western US and Canada. I raised a family in Austin, Texas but have been single for about 15 years.


Although I have slowed down physically with age it just takes a little longer to get where I want to be, exploring mountain ranges and canyon lands. I have snow skied up to double blacks although blues are becoming more my speed now. I took up rock climbing and was up to 5.10 rated climbs before I tore up my shoulders. After that I went to a canyoneering school in Escalante, UT. I have spent a number of backpacking vacations in Big Bend National Park, exploring remote canyons, and in the Wind River Range and Grand Tetons in Wyoming.


I'm searching for the million dollar views from my motor coach front porch and from my backpacking tent.
