Always have enjoyed the outdoors. My Dad first took me backpacking at the age of 9 to Barkley Lake off Highway 2 in 1970 and went on many backpacking trips in the early 70's, especially the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area. When I was 11 I went to a kids summer camp at Lake Becharof in Alaska for a week, the only way to get there was by small airplane. It was pristine wilderness with abundant wildlife. Gave me a love for remote wilderness areas here in Washington, hence my attraction to the Glacier Peak Wilderness area. Live in Skagit County and go hiking any chance I can get.
