Name: Doris Wang

Hometown: Lynnwood, Washington

Where I’ve Been: I have hiked and backpacked some of the tallest peaks in Southern California, including Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto Mountain, and San Gorgonio. Other notable peaks I have hiked and backpacked in California are Mt. Whitney and Half Dome. Three years ago I moved to Washington and have hiked to the top of Mt. Adams and Mt. St Helens. I have also traveled to 20+ countries and hiked in China, Japan, Croatia, Austria, and Canada! Some international National Parks I have been to include Banff in Canada and Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.

Why I Hike: Once I graduated college I started hiking regularly as a free hobby at first. Then I moved to Washington and the trails are all so close and beyond beautiful that I want to see it all! I also enjoy showing others that anyone can get out in nature and enjoy the trails!

Lead The Way: I have a few goals and trips in mind for 2019! I want to go on a solo backpacking trip in Washington. I want to backpack to Tapto Lakes and thru hike to Ross Lake from there, roughly 35 miles. I have a trip to Iceland and Norway planned in May. I also have backpacking permits secured for Berg Lake Trail up near Jasper National Park in Canada for August 2019.
