My motivation for joining is to go on more organized hikes and meet other people that like to hike. I like day trips to more regional places with longer, more strenuous hikes. If I'm nursing an injury maybe some slower, easier hikes with themes like identifying spring ephemerals, or with wildlife biologists and ecologists so I can learn more along the way. Just a thought.
I am a life-long hiker. From walks through rock creek to rigorous eight hour hikes up mountain trails (or off trail) - I love it all! But in DC I tend to hike less and less. Now that I'm aware of this meet-up I hope that changes!
