What interests you the most about taking MIndful/MEditative WALKs out in nature?

I lived in Portland, OR from 2002 - 2010, and although I'm a native southerner, living in the Pacific NW turned me into a trail and forest lover. Even though I love Raleigh, I miss my connection with the outdoors and would love to have a group to explore with - I know we have wonderful trails in NC, but I haven't explored them yet and am anxious to do so. I'm particularly interested in this group because while I'd like to have a group to walk with and encourage me to get outside, my job often exerts all of my extroverted energy, and being able to be with other like-minded folks - without the pressure to engage in conversation all the time - is really appealing to me.

Do you have a favorite outdoor place/trail that inspires you?

Yes! But it's in Oregon. Multnomah Falls and the Columbia River Gorge were a fifteen minute drive from my house in Portland, and I loved that I could feel like I was completely removed from civilization, yet still so close to home. The hikes along the Gorge are what turned me from a couch-loving bookworm to a woman who loves the outdoors.

Joining this group requires that you are solely responsible for your own health and safety on walks. Please state below that you "agree."

Hi! I'm 34 and work at NC State University. I moved to Raleigh in October of 2012 and am interested in reading, writing, learning, and exploring the outdoors in NC.
