We were bitten by the mountain spirit in our late 20's on a cross-country trip to see every major national park in two weeks. A ranger in Glacier NP told us that the only way to really see a national park was to walk on a trail away from roads. We did what he suggested and haven't stopped hiking since. We're snowbirds from the East, New York to be exact, where the highest mountains near us are about 1,500 ft. We live at sea level. When we need to train for a mountain excursion, we climb Bear Mountain three or four times in a day. Bob likes to peak bag and loves the mountains and deserts here in the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas. His present goal is to finish the PCT and remains undeterred by the realization that it will, at his present annual mileage, require 132 more years to complete. Cathy puts up with the peak-bagging thing but focuses more on the journey. It's a joy for us to show hikers a new trail or perhaps an old trail from a new perspective. There is always time to stop at a viewpoint or check out an unfamiliar plant or critter. We both enjoy traveling and combine that with hiking, sampling the local cuisine, and visiting art museums wherever we go.
