NorCal Wild is about hanging out with Mother Nature and is open only to those living in the counties listed below. We are eager newcomers or experienced trekkers who jump in, not just people who join and move on.
We find happiness in a field of wild lupine or in the sapphire blue of an alpine lake; laugh at a scheming marmot; put on a Mona Lisa smile at 15 switchbacks in the low sun of the day's end; unfazed, seek cover in a storm or figure a way across a roaring stream. We never forget to bring whiskey and hot cocoa to warm up on a winter's journey. We are excited and at ease out in the wilds. We play with the wide-eyed energy of child, know our limits and chuckle at them. We play safe and revere Mother Nature.
We intentionally are small, well under 200 active explorers. We are selective and will rely on your responses to make a judgment about membership. We love members new to the outdoors as well as those who claim Grizzly Adams as kin!!! And since there's not enough room to fit us all, we limit membership to residents of northern California -- Shasta, Tehama, Trinity, Siskiyou, Lassen, Glenn, and Butte counties.
