About

I am an amateur travel planner, and am happiest when I am in the throes of coordinating a backpacking adventure.  I have always enjoyed writing up my travel tales in e-mail form for family and friends, so thought I’d try capturing them in blog form instead.

Red Hawk of the Thunderbird Clan is my Native American alias, adopted (a la Brady Bunch) after a rim-to-rim hike of the Grand Canyon in September 2007 which ended in an unplanned helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon Clinic at the South Rim (the subject of another tale).
