What we're about

I love going on mini (and longer) trips - to hike, camp, kayak and ski - and love sharing these experiences with others. I try to plan at least two trips a year, usually 3-5 nights long. Most trips will be within driving distance in California, Arizona and Utah. Some trip ideas off my bucket list:

- Grand Canyon! I have yet to hike the Bright Angel trail, and want to do it soon.
- Havasupai Falls. Been there once but can't wait to go back
- Zion and Bryce in Utah. A couple of my favorite places
- Black Canyon kayaking on Nevada/Arizona border.
- Kayaking on Lake Tahoe
- Kayaking in Catalina and Channel Islands National Park
- Grand Staircase/Escalante in Utah
- Yosemite

The cost of the trips will vary, but usually is anywhere from $35 to several hundred, especially for kayaking trips where kayak rental is needed.

If this sounds like something you'd love to do, please join the group!

NOTE: I also organize the Catholic Hiking and Outdoor Group (https://www.meetup.com/Catholic-Hiking-and-Outdoor-Group/). All the trips will be cross-posted in that group. My +1 indicator will usually include members from that group, but California and Beyond Outdoor Trips is open to everyone!
