About

Australian. Grew up camping and fishing on lakes and inland rivers. Have always enjoyed bushwalking, swimming in rivers, lakes and the sea, and love nature and the outdoors. Studied Science and Horticulture. Fell in love with the Sierra Nevada mountains of California and luckily so did my partner, so we have made a bit of a habit of visiting in their summer (our winter) each year for the past four years and heading back again this year (2013). In 2012 we hiked nearly half the JMT over 23 days (130 miles). We are mid-weight backpackers, eg carry a good tent, we are in our '40s. Still feel very much hiking novices in the mountains which are so novel to us (we don't really have mountains in Australia!). But we also feel very at home there. Can't wait to get back!
