Christy winters in the desert and summers in Kelowna, BC. That means all-year hiking in glorious weather and scenery. She leads, often with her partner John Green, mostly fast-paced strenuous hikes, but she gladly slows down for hikes rated moderate or easy. Christy plays golf with wild inconsistency, and refuses to let the game spoil the walk. She has run a few marathons and hopes to do just one more when she is past 70. Dragon-boating in Canada and and snow shoeing up Mt. San Jacinto are current passions. In a past life, she was a Sacramento land use attorney.
