Being On Time Be
Please be respectful of others and be on time or you will be left behind.
Pace: You absolutely need to know your pace and ability levels.
Group Hiking: Always stay with the group.
Safety: Getting everyone through the hike safely is my number one priority.
Know and understand the following classes of our hikes. Be sure you are comfortable with the posted class before signing up. Most hikes posted with classes 4 and 5 typically only have small sections that are at that level, but it’s important to know you must be prepared to face those areas. Class 1: Walking with a low chance of injury. Class 2: Simple scrambling with the possibility of occasional use of the hands. Little potential danger is encountered. Class 3: Scrambling with increased exposure. A rope can be carried but is usually not required. Falls are not always fatal. Class 4: Simple climbing with exposure.

I am an outdoor enthusiast who would rather be on a backcountry backpacking trip than a stroll on the beach (although I do love the beach!).
Living in Las Vegas has afforded me the opportunity to easily explore the Southwest region of the United States.
A nature lover, I am often found at the end of the pack taking photos and videos of the wildlife found on the trails. Colorful flowers, desert animals, and unusual geological rock formations are often the majority of my photos.
