Meetup- Saturday walks from Veterans Park

There's a hiking group that meets at Veteran's park, near the kite shop, every Saturday all winter long.  Today they walked to the Art Museum and watched the wings open.  The route can vary from time to time.  If you're interested in getting out and doing something, but you don't know anyone to do it with, Meetup may be for you.  You sign into www.meetup.com  and enter your interests.  If you include hiking or walking, you can be added to this group.  There's a $10 annual fee to be part of the walking/hiking/camping group.  They meet at 9:45 and walk about 3 miles which takes 1 1/2 hours.  Then there's a social hour at Alterra on the lakefront afterwards.  It's a great way to get some exercise, enjoy the outdoors and have a good conversation.  Think of all the therapy sessions you won't need if you do this!


If you enjoy the hiking locally, there are other hikes to various places around the state.  You're under no obligation to attend any or all of the events.  It's just a standing invitation to go do something.  When you want to join in, you just let the organizer know you're coming.  In addition to hiking, there are ski trips, camp-outs, snowshoeing, cross country skiing...you could find yourself having a lot of fun and trying some new things in the great outdoors.

If you decide to try it, let me know.  I personally think it's a hoot!
