Welcome aboard, SuKi! If you have any pictures of your hikes abroad, feel free to post them in "beyond the Sierra Nevada" section. Love to see a pic of Lily as well.

Ask any questions you want. You'll get answers. :)

Thank you for your service.

I just posted a trip report of my first time in the Sierra viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19052
Long story short, I fell in love and want to move to Lone Pine, sadly my wife would never agree :)

I'm from FL but live in KY. I do most of my hiking/backpacking in the SE Appalachians (mostly solo), but I am already planning next summer in the Sierra, lots of questions coming your way.

I also started a blog a couple years ago when I realized that I was never looking at the photos I took during trips. In the last couple years, I started carrying a dslr (first a Nikon D5100 and last year I got a Sony A72) and a tripod.

Hi Scott,

Welcome to HST! Thanks for the link, enjoyed the photo's, especially the one's you took in Sweden. :nod:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Howdy everyone. My name is Dusty and I currently live in NY. I joined here to find some ideas/inspiration for a trip to SEKI or the surrounding wilderness areas in June. Earlier this year I backpacked Great Smokey Mountain NP and the year before I hiked Canyonlands NP in the Needles District. Both were amazing.

I'm really looking forward to getting this next trip right too and I'm hoping ya'll can help out with that!
