I live in Southern California but to tell the truth, I hike all over the place - of course, most of the time I hike locally here in Orange County and I'm very lucky to have many, many trails near enough to get out frequently. I'm a volunteer with the Irvine Ranch Conservancy, Laguna Canyon Foundation and Sierra Club so I try to hike several times a week, usually going at least 3.5 miles or more. Today we hiked about 10 miles plus a couple more miles for dog-walking but most of my hikes are shorter.
My vacations almost always include hiking plans - fortunately, my husband enjoys it, too, so in the past year, 2012 we've hiked in Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and all over California - in 2013 we're planning to hike in Europe next fall, along with the usual 'wherever we can go' plans
