1970’s

The 1970’s started with us living in Connecticut so my early trips were in New England.  We then moved to Texas and I began working for Wilderness Equipment, where I was immersed in all kinds of outdoor pursuits.  We would travel all over the west on trips.  Finally in the late 70’s I moved to Utah to go to college and work.  From there I had all of Utah to explore.
