More of the above. Plus easy contact with fellow hikers.
My profile photo was taken on a Sierra hike in the Mitteldorf Preserve. This was a 15-mile strenuous trek - the panoramic view at the summit was the big reward!
More communication amongst local members. This meetup group is an excellent start.
I'm a Sierra Club member and have enjoyed many hikes in the Santa Cruz, Monterey and Big Sur areas. Good people, amazing sights and smells, and at the end of the day better looking thighs. Fantastic wildflower show this Spring.
