Greetings!

We have a fun 3.5 hour walkabout through the urban, hip and colorful neighborhoods of Tennyson, Berkley and West Highlands. Come prepared to learn all kinds of fun facts and history on these unique NW Denver communities while also burning a few hundred calories along the way. (Photo below of Berkley Lake in the Fall)

- New Walk2Connect Host Julie Mosley! Walk2Connect is growing and we want to welcome Julie Mosley as a new Meetup Walk2Connect trip leader! She will be facilitating this fun walking trip. Julie completed her International Tour Director Certification in March 2012 with the aim of creating memorable experiences for people on trips all over the world. As a Colorado native, Julie loves sharing her knowledge of local history, stories and even a few secrets with those that join her various adventures. She believes that walking gives people a unique opportunity to connect with their communities, enjoy the outdoors, and practice being present. With a half-glass full attitude, Julie embraces beauty in the everyday and takes every opportunity to laugh. (Photo below of Julie)
