Major LAM Activities and Positions Held:
Tianshu moved to Los Alamos from Toronto, Canada in November 2006 and joined LA Mountaineers in December 2006. Tianshu's first year with LA Mountaineers has been a learning experience for her. Many of her "first time" outdoor activities occurred with this group of amazing people such as first time hiking in the canyon and in the mud, first time backpacking and starting a campfire, first time setting up a tent and sleeping in the wild nature. A road runner of a big city transforming into a backpacker of the wild country, she couldn't have imagined how much she would love hiking on rugged trails, climbing high mountains, and encountering wild flowers and animals. She is looking forward to learning and experiencing more with the LA Mountaineers.
