Time-Period Summary Reports

I have been hiking the back country of the Western United States for over twenty years. Most of my trips were focused on flyfishing pristine back country lakes and streams with adventurous family members and friends. More recently, my focus has shifted to pushing myself both physically and mentally towards a much higher goal. In 2007, I set a personal goal to someday stand atop the trophy summit of North America - Denali.

As you will see, many of my summit attempts listed on this page have an emphasis on at least one of three main categories; High Altitude, Snow & Ice, or endurance. This is not to say I am passing up opportunities to bag lesser summits from time to time, I simply have a much greater goal in mind and I realize I must train within these three primary parameters to achieve it...

At this time, I hope to join a Denali summit team in the Spring of 2013.
