Rick Ramos, a native Californian, has been a Sierra Club member over 20 years and has been a hike leader at Group, Chapter and National levels the entire time. Rick has been active in the outdoors from childhood and is more comfortable outside than inside. His adventures have taken him from Baja to Alaska and West Coast to East Coast. He has skied and climbed Mt. Shasta in California, backpacked in Denali, Alaska, kayaked in Canada and Baja, and scrambled the canyons of Utah. His love of the outdoors is evidenced by his knowledge of the natural world which he loves to share on national outings.
