What we're about
This is a group for people who, like me, like to take life at a slow and steady pace. I love the outdoors and love hiking, but I find that I am often lagging behind. However, like the tortoise, I keep a steady pace and always get there in the end. We will do mostly short-to-medium-length hikes (2 - 6 miles) and our pace runs about two miles per hour. Most hikes will be less than an hours drive from Boulder but we will venture farther afield on occasion.
Fellowship of the Tortoise is for ANY age. Older people who have slowed down, younger folks who are just starting out, people who are overweight and want to get moving, people who are recovering from an injury, people who occasionally like to stop and take pictures or smell the roses...anyone who wants to take things at a slower pace. We hope to hike once or twice a week. To avoid parking issues, weekend walks will be early. In addition, there will be trips scheduled that may combine hiking with culture and site-seeing excursions!
Please leave your fur babies at home.
