I've hiked most of my life, but I did not get bitten by the peak bagging bug until we bought a second home in Taos, New Mexico in 2007. We spend summers in Taos and the rest of the year in Pittsburgh, Pa. I'm looking for summer hiking companions in Northern New Mexico who won't mind a slow moving 67 year old and fall and spring hikers for Pa. and W.Va.
