    Cary, North Carolina 

    Son of one of the leaders on this site --> graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014 with an Economic major and Environmental Science and Studies minor. I enjoy getting outdoors from time to time. I have been to the majority of National Parks in the United States with family. Would like to do some individual/independent travel with friends at some point. Have been hiking in these states: ME, VT, NH, NY, MA, RI, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, TN, CA, WY, CO, NM, OR, MT, AZ, HI, WA, UT, Vancouver Canada and British Colombia. I have been to 33 of the 59 NPs. Highlights include Volcanoes NP, Haleakala NP (going to the top of Haleakala and Sliding Sands), Yosemite (Half Dome, 4 mile trail, Yosemite falls trail, North Dome, Mist Trail, Olmsted Point, Mt Hoffman, The Valley, Glacier Point, Illouette Falls, John Muir trail), Yellowstone, Sequoia, Grand Canyon (north and south rim), Bryce, Zion (Angeles Landing, Valley View), Arches, Redwoods, Olympic, Acadia (Beehive, Precipice), Great Smokey Mountain (Mt Leconte), Glacier, Rocky Mountain NP, Canyon lands, Moab, Mount Rainier, Mt St Helen's, Blue Ridge Parkway, Mesa Verde, Grand Teutons, Death Valley, Crater Lake, Great Basin, Lassen Volcanic NP, Capitol Reef, Shenandoah, Petrified Forest, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Great Sand dunes, Saguraro NP, and Bristol Cone Pine. I've been mountain biking 22 miles up the Flume trail in Lake Tahoe. Kayaking in Maine in the ocean and Hawaii to the Mokula islands. Zip lining and gondola/ski lift riding in Whistler, Canada (Peak-to-Peak, Heavenly) and in Lake Tahoe, Mt Hood. Have been to many State Parks as well.
