I grew up with two siblings in Hopkington & Albuquerque and went to college/grad school in Boston. I've lived in the Bay Area for more than 10 years now, so I pretty much consider the Bay Area my home.
Simple pleasures are often the best. Dinner/drinks, a day hike, or chatting over coffee/dessert.
It's been a great summer so far, with lots of weekend climbing trips to Mickey's Beach and Tahoe. I also did some climbing in Maple Canyon (UT) over July 4th and it was really fun to check out some new crags.
I'm heading to the North Cascades after Labor Day for a backpacking trip and then will be in the Seattle area visiting my parents for a few days. After that, I'll be back in training mode for our annual climbing trip to the Red River Gorge in October.
