Hello Everyone!

I inherited this Meetup because I like to hike in the morning, ... the hikes will be scheduled usually every weekend on area trails early in the morning, usually close to dawn - but hikes any time are possible. In the summer they will be earlier to avoid the Texas heat! After the hike we will usually meet somewhere for breakfast, close to the hiking trail.

By the way - I will make anyone who wants to create hiking events an asst. organizer. I'm always open to new ideas on trails to take and breakfast places... so let me know if you have something in mind!

I hope you have fun on our hikes! See you on the trail !

Dave Sanford
