About Renee

I was born and raised in Northern California  and I describe myself as a chop-sui Cali girl.  My parents were born and raised in Hawaii and found their way to California.  I've worked in the high tech industry for several years and have gotten the opportunity to travel all over the world.  Even with all of that traveling I've done I think California is the best place to be.

 I did not spend much time in the mountains of California while I was growing up...maybe a trip or two every summer.  In my late 20s I started spending a lot more time in the Sierra Nevada doing some snowboarding and starting to backpack and that when the addiction to the mountains began.  I am lucky enough now to own a place in Mammoth Lakes and I spend my time backpacking, snowboarding, cross country skiing, doing photography and hiking.


I like sharing the adventures I've been on as well as the tips and resources so other can have as much fun as I've been having.

Enjoy! Renee
