Monday morning quick walk on Hillside trails ?- from Service High parking lot

  • June 23, 2008 · 6:00 AM
  • This location is no longer available

WHAT: Walk for 45 - 60 minutes on Hillside packed dirt trails.
WHEN: 6 AM meeting. We'll keep it short enough to be gone by 7 or even a few minutes before if participants want.
WHERE: Meet at the Service High School back parking lot by the outdoor ice rink and "little gym" (no sign on the building stating that name though). Use the 4th driveway into Service if you are heading east on Abbott Rd.
DETAILS: ? For midtown and south Anchorage Adventurers or those who want to come check out our "local" trails. ? As long as we stay off the "Bog" Trail we can keep our feet dry. --- A few stretching exercises might be a good idea before blasting off from the parking lot BRING (optional): ? Ski/ trekking/ nordic walking poles ? Small pack to carry layered clothing as you warm up and shed the warmer layers ? Water ? Mosquito and bear sprays
DOGS: Yes, but be aware of lots of moose in the genral area that may have young with them. There also may be bears in the area. Mosquitos were present on the 19th and they really bothered my dog. Bring a leash and dog-drop-bags.

    What started out as a brisk walk ended being a slow jog. The pace was a bit fast for me this morning but thank goodness there was Elsena to help me out. If she wasn't there I would have had a really hard time keeping up.

    I like the early the morning with my ADDHD dog and finding another member with whom I can keep pace. (Due to ski injuries in my youth and no cartilage left in my left knee, I am not supposed to run.) If the group gets ahead of us, no worries, I know all the shortcuts on the Hillside trails!

    This is a hot group that enjoys the gusto of the morning's fresh air. Today the trails were in great condition and at the end of our walk, we got to see Mama Moosie and her Baby, who were all ears as we came around the bend.

    7 people --- 3 or 4 dogs and a great time. Trails are dry and weather was perfect. Thanks to all who came out for another fine morning. Next time --- this Thursday --- we will move over to the Hilltop Ski Area parking lot to start from there. Come join us.

    This is a NEW LOCATION --- not where we have gone previous Monday or Thursday mornings. PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION and show up there for a great, 45-55 minute, walk. Please be prompt so we can maximize the walk time and still get done and gone by 7 AM.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
