I had a heart attack at age 54 and retired 9 monthes later and hiked thruout the SW US the next 8 years. These are the pictures of where my hiking took me. The first 5 years most of my hiking was solo. Then I met a gentleman who was doing the same thing and we hiked together most of the time for the next 3 years. The timeframe was 1993 to 2001.
