Who am I ?

 Hello, John Marin here.

 

After spending some time as a US Marine and making base camp in Southern California for many years we transplanted to Las Vegas in 2012.  I suck at gambling so I thought what better way to keep my money  in my pocket  and get healthier than hiking. I did my time as a dedicated SWEEPER in hikes for about a year. I organized with a couple of groups to get the hang of Scrambling and people.  As time went on a couple of good friends and I formed our own  “SPECIAL” group and the rest of the story is still being written.  I believe in showing  new hikers to hike with their own free spirit and  with like minded souls and  mentor when possible .  SPIRIT, SAFETY, LEGACY.

 

Hiking with Me

I prefer to hike the Calico basin area of RedRock Canyon and its assorted peaks  but have ventured to Sedona and Valley of Fire as well as Arizona and Utah areas.  I like to lead 3 to 4 hour hikes but can do  a marathon hike also ( 7 to 9 hr). My pace is from  easy to moderate.
