I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico (near the foothills of the Sandia Mountains) and El Paso, Texas (near the Franklin Mountains). I have been hiking since approximately age 7. To me nothing is better than reaching a summit. I think the ultimate way to top out is by mountain bike (with apologies to the purists out there) to enable a rapid (and infinitely more exciting) descent. My son, Brad, and wife, Denise, also like to hike. I live near Chicago, so I am "mountain deprived" but always looking for an opportunity to get to the slopes. My favorite and most memorable peak is Mauna Loa in Hawaii. The most difficult was Sierra Blanca, New Mexico, accomplished is an epic out-and-back from the desert in 1 day. My favorite mountain bike summit is Hillsboro Peak, New Mexico.
