Hometown: Claremont, CA
February 8, 2013
Hi...my name is Olga. I moved here from So. California seven years ago. I spend so much time working that I haven't made many friends here...it's time! I'm also looking to get fit again!
Walking, hiking...any kind of exploring and I'd like to try something new this year...not sure what yet.
Too many to name!
I'm an artist and I'd connected with a few Navajo Fol k Artists in Four Corners (the Arizona side). They asked me to "stop by" any time I was in the area...LOL...it's in the middle of nowhere. A friend and I mapped out the approximate areas we knew they lived by the landmarks they shared with us and the two of us (women) drove deep into the Sweetwater Reservation just outside of Shiprock. It was the coolest thing ever. We were stopped a few times because non-Native Americans don't usually go back that far without guides...we let them know who we were going to see, so they followed us and found us to be legitimate, so all was cool...and...I brought back some very beautiful wood carvings!
Maui up country...Paris (I'm a city girl too!)
Joined Meet up
Yes, I grew up in Hungary. Is your family from Russia? I often go in hikes both with Tennessee Wild and Chattanooga Hiking Meetup; hopefully our paths will cross again!
Sounds good Olga!
Hi Olga, it was nice meeting you yesterday at the Outdoor Chattanooga meet and greet. Feel free to join us in the Cherokee Hiking Club for the Fall Creek Falls hike coming up this Saturday 2/16 if you are interested. It is sponsored by the Tennessee Conservationists, and features a couple of easy hikes. There will be a carpool leaving Cleveland @ 10:00 a.m. our time. Details are on the Cherokee Hiking Club Meetup page.
