Good morning. With more than a handful of new members, I thought I’d take a moment and reiterate the vibe of this group. I started it last year as a way to join several eclectic subgroups of my friends doing something we all love: hiking. Since then, due to the enthusiastic response of many nature-loving friends and friends-of-friends and friends-of-friends-of-friends, etc. we have grown into a sizeable group. My template is to select, and toss up as an event, a Sunday afternoon hike in the Anchorage area, with the idea being to hit as many great spots as possible, and some of them two or three times. However, this group is also accommodating to anyone who is headed out and wants a partner or partners- and just wants to post a “I’m climbing Flattop this afternoon. Anyone care to join?” kind of notice. We love pictures here, especially selfies taken outside. The age range of our group runs the gamut- and our hikes almost always have kids and dogs tagging along. The dynamic is that we do not all know each other- yet- but that if you hike with us this summer, you are guaranteed to end the season with 30-50 new friends who share at least one interest in common. Last thing I’ll mention is that this year I am going to continue into wintertime activities- skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, sledding and winter camping parties.
