About James Leet

I'm still developing new interests. In the last few years, I've been very focused on hiking, gratefully experiencing the varied beauty of our world. I hiked the entire state of California - about 400 miles - from east to west. I went with a group of people over a long series of weekends and we hiked between 12 - 15 miles a day. I've also hiked the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler Tracks in New Zealand and Haute Route in Switzerland. In 2016, I finished the Laugavegur Trail in Iceland. Great hikes, but now I would like to hike the many trails in the USA.
