I've recently returned from a 3-week road trip through California, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, and Oregon! Many states were a first time for me. I packed with me my latest purchase and passion, an inflatable stand up paddle board, which took a dip in Lake Coeur D'Alene, Spirit Lake in Idaho and the Deschutes River in Bend Oregon. So I've covered almost everything water now!
I'm back in San Diego and ready to hit the trails and the ocean. Love that we can connect here through REI in Conversations. Especially during these trying Covid times. Hope to meet you OUT THERE soon!
PS: I published a book in February and was in talks with REI to get it on the San Diego shelves, then we all know what happened. Here's the link on Amazon if you'd like to take a peek!
Interesting! I see that Death Valley NM was involved in your hiking scapads. By any chance did you ever climb Telescope Peak by way of the Charcoal Kilns?
