I’m an independent traveler, meaning that I (and my husband, Steve) usually take off to far away lands with a minimum of baggage, a trusty guidebook, and a very rough idea of where we want to go. We love the outdoors, so when we’re tied to our home base in Marin County, California we get out whenever possible to hike, backpack, ski, mountain bike, paddle and enjoy all that nature has to offer. We get away to our mountain home at Lake Tahoe every chance we get. We ealso explore our nearby wine tasting areas of Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino counties, enjoy the cultural amenities of San Francisco,  and take pleasure in the company of good friends and family.

I’m a member of the San Francisco-based Bay Area Travel Writer’s Association and report on events and activities in the Sierra as the SF Sierras Travel Examiner. Friends have frequently asked me for tips on where to go and what to do, so having my blog saves me from scribbling notes on cocktail napkins.  My goal is to post on this blog about once every 2-4 weeks.
