Why are you interested in this group?

I love to walk and want to stay healthy. I now have the time in my life because my family is scattered about. I need a new group that is lively and interested in the world and the neighborhood. I have a back ground in botany and geology that has been neglected for a while because of work and life. Very fond of photography and other arts but would like to get out and do some nature photos. Will have new places soon to visit where mountains are plentiful and I want to be able to experience them.

Do you have particular knowledge that would be beneficial to this group?

I have been educated in sciences with much of that geology and botany. Having some training in photography adds to the fun for activities that you all may participate in such as hiking those mountain trails in Arkansas. I am from Arkansas and have, in the past, hiked about down there. It has been a while since my last hike. Looking forward to getting out in those mountains again

What would be an activity that you would like to participate in?

Hiking and any thing that has an positive impact on the environment. Simply being around like-minded folks would be greatly appreciated.


Having recently retired gives me time that I want to get outdoors and see what is here in the Ozarks that I have not had a chance to do yet . My children and I hike regularly when we are together but they are scattered. I enjoy walking with others.
