This is a public service announcement.
One of our fellow members, Ken, has started his own hiking group and has requested yours truly to help spread the word (and who am I to say no).
From having Ken with us on 11 hikes and 2 camping trips over the past two years, I can tell you Ken is a really decent human being and a very good guy and I know you'll be better for having joined his group, which is Washarea Discovery Hikes http://www.meetup.com/Washarea-Discovery-Hikes/.
With its inquisitive spirit, the group is a little different than ours as Washarea combines learning with exercise. Hikes are held on Saturday and the group ventures outside our traditional footprint of Northern Virginia. So if you're into flora, fauna, geology, and history, are free Saturday mornings, and wanna get away NoVa. This group's for you!
I'm a proud member of Washarea Discovery Hikes!!
