    It was awesome snowy hike with my fellow hikers from other groups! It had 2" to 3" of snow over night and it was a beautiful day with no wind and party cloudy sky. I had a fun hiking with everyone! Thank you to Mika for your time & effort organizing this event on a beautiful snow hike! :-)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
